Hi Trailsend Family,

Thank you all so much for your out reach with all the meals this week 14-1 and 14-2. Last scheduled pick up date for y’all is tomorrow during practice times. Next week 16-2 and 18-1 will be scheduled for meals for the family. Obviously if anyone still wants to contribute it is more than welcome. The family would like to let everyone know how much they appreciate the outreach of blessings all of you have given to them during these times.

Speaking of blessing, as most of you know Ryan Kamahoahoa, I thought I would send y’all a blog since all of you have become so much apart of our families lives. As of last night my family received a phone call that Ryan had a kidney waiting for him at OHSU if he is ready to receive. Ryan has been on dialysis for years now and Ryan’s days had become numbered as the hours have taken its toll on Ryan. He has been on transplant list for 15 plus years and many of you have been tested for becoming his donor yourselves. Unfortunately because Ryan is so rare there is only a 1% chance that anyone in the world would match with Ryan.

Last night a miracle happened and we got the unexpected but always prayed for phone call that his kidney had arrived. Early this morning he had the 5 plus hour surgery and is now in recovery. He is having tests done as we speak to make sure everything is working properly. Family will be in the hospital for the next few days. We are all still in shock at this moment is and will be life changing for our family. I want to thank you all for your prayers over the years. Please still be praying not only for Ryan but also the family in which we received the kidney as someone had to lose their life in order for this to happen. God is good all the time!!!

Good luck to all teams this weekend!!!
