Our focus on quality of life comes from our backstory. 15 years ago I was in the restaurant & bar business. It was an industry that I knew well and work that I truly enjoyed. Then, one random night, I was involved in a very serious accident. This turned my life upside-down in an instant. I was bedridden for 6 months and facing a possible below-the-knee amputation to give me the best chance of ever walking again.
To cut a long story short, several years later I had overcome my injuries and learned to walk again without the suggested amputation. However, I was still not 100% and was unable to go back to the industry I knew so well. I got the opportunity to rehab a house for a friend to make a little money. It afforded me the flexibility to work on days when I felt like I could and rest when I needed to. It also taught me a new trade…one that I really enjoyed. After finishing that first rehab, I found myself moving on to more rehab work. Eventually, I branched out into and tried new home construction too.
Then, in 2014, my wife was diagnosed with Stage 5 Kidney Failure. Again, our lives were instantly turned upside down. No other health issues…no family history…no idea what the cause was. The only thing that we knew for certain was that she need a kidney transplant. She immediately began dialysis which stabilized her and kept her alive…but that is about all it did.
Fast forward approximately 3 years. My wife is now happy, healthy and a full of energy. She recently received a life-saving kidney donation…from me. I am recovered from donating my kidney to her. Life is pretty much back to normal. The main thing that has changed is the value we put on quality of life. We have been through the ups and downs…repeatedly. Nothing is guaranteed in life. We are living proof that life can change in an instant. This is what makes the quality of life so important.
We are so blessed to have made it through our turmoils and still be happy and healthy. We try not to take anything for granted now. My wife is still a labor and delivery nurse but I have decided to take this new, albeit familiar, path. I would like to ask you for the opportunity to take care of your home maintenance needs. Let us take care of this burden to free you up to help you focus on creating the best quality of life possible for you and your loved ones!
I will be donating a portion of every inspection to various organ donation charities focusing on educating people on becoming a donor and getting people of sign up to become a donor, either a living donor like myself or at least becoming a donor upon death. Read more here
