Man's church helping him get transplant

An article, Church Unites to Help Man Get Kidney Transplant, that appeared in the (Chattanooga Times Free Press) tells the story of Victor Delgado and his struggle to live. Victor has fought diabetes for 37 years and now needs a kidney and pancreas transplant in order to live. A kidney-pancreas transplant is one of the rarest of transplants but Victor is relying on his faith and his church, Red Bank Hispanic Baptist Church, to see him through. In fact, his church is helping to raise the funds to pay for the portion of the costs of his transplant that his health insurance will not. Based upon the love and support his church family is showing him and his family during this time, it sounds like they are cut from the same cloth as mine.
