Meet Jonathan Traylor-
Husband, Father & Friend to all. 43, married 20 years to Melissa with 2 children Jett 18, and Mackenzie 17. I have a very strong supporting family.
I worked in Technology , computer/printer diagnostics & hardware repair. Website design & fluent in Social Media.
On July 8th , 2019 I went into kidney failure (Stage 5 ESRD). I woke up in the ICU on dialysis. I was about 30 minutes from death according to doctors. I went from the hospital after a 2 week stay to in center hemodialysis treatments. After around 10 months of being in center I progressed to Home Hemodialysis along with my wife as a caretaker. I only did home hemodialysis for 3-4 months.
On August 11th 2020, I received my miracle Gift of Life. I was transplanted in San Antonio, Texas at Methodist Specialty and Transplant.
I have a passion for all things kidney and now use my personal story to give encouragement & hope to those that are suffering with kidney disease. I now advocate for organ donation for kidney patients. I’m grateful and blessed to share my messages of hope with others. I knew i survived this experience for a reason, i knew i had to do more and so then Hope with Jonathan was born.
