Jon Gadoua Needs A LIVING Kidney DONOR

Jon has a scientific soul & is forever curious about the world & how it works. Help him continue to teach, travel & spend be with the people he loves.

Jon is my youngest brother. I've known him since he was born but my earliest memories of us growing up together are sharing a bedroom in elementary school and middle school. We used to enjoy listening to Old Time Radio shows and Yankee baseball games on the radio at bedtime. Later, while I worked my way through high school and college Jon began to reveal his sharp scientific mind and curiosities. His success in in high school aptitude tests, then college and onwards to grad school were amazing. He was smart and he was coming into his own as a physics student and gifted teacher. Recently, I had the opportunity to overhear him teaching students in a zoom call. I was amazed at his gift for teaching complex physics concepts using real world examples, light hearted humor and gentle encouragement to engage his students. It's obvious his students enjoy learning from Jon. One of Jon's Happy Places is the Disneyland parks. We have great memories of our trips to the parks in California / Florida. He's a great travel companion and knows all the best spots. I look forward to traveling with Jon to more Disney Parks in Paris and Japan when his health returns!

In the past year, since he began dialysis Jon has been limited in the amount of teaching he can do, has been tired and can't travel the world as he enjoys.

A new kidney would give Jon the opportunity to continue doing what he loves - teaching students, traveling and enjoying his family and friends for years to come.

Please, if you or someone you know has a healthy kidney to donate contact his hospital with the information provided. Thank you.
