Kidney recipient and awaiting another lifesaving gift

Hello my name is Aaron Thacker and I’m currently waiting on a kidney transplant. I’ve been on dialysis for the last 18 months and it’s been very difficult to say the least. My fiancé, Jenn has helped me out so much during this trying time but I continue to lose weight and have secondary issues from this disease.

We have a wonderful family of 4 furbabies and a rabbit, I want to get healthy so I can be there for them. I have been at my full time job for 15 years now and I started my Pressure Washing company, Performance Pressure Washing, two years ago.

When I’m healthy I enjoy spending time with family and friends. They all mean so much to me. I also enjoy playing pool, going to movies and concerts, helping others and working out.

In 2005 I Won the Kentucky Muscle heavyweight novice and super heavyweight open division. I’ve always enjoyed working out and being healthy so this has been such a struggle.

I’m Praying for a miracle to get a kidney and get back to enjoying life. I had my first transplant on March 4th,2011. Due to Covid I lost my donated kidney. In almost 11 years with my first kidney I was able to move up at work, start my own business and finish my business degree at Ivy tech. I can promise when I get a donated kidney I will make the most of it everyday. Thanks and God bless.
