||i am involved with donate life because, after my wife sandra and i were married, at age 35, she suffered acute kidney failure. after a long period on dialysis, we were fortunate that i was able to donate my own kidney to her. this restored her life and our family.
during sandra�s time on dialysis, the costs for treatments, laboratory work and doctors visits became enormous. i vowed to help my clients be prepared financially for catastrophic illnesses like the one that befell us. i spoke to industry experts and learned all i could about medicare (kidney failure is one of the exceptions for receiving medicare benefits before age 65) and coping with catastrophic illnesses. i developed an understanding and compassion for people suffering from serious health conditions and the financial challenges that accompany them.
as a result of my family�s experience, i remain an independent financial advisor. my clients and i are able to choose from a full spectrum strategies and programs.
