This is the week that John Contreras, family ministry pastor at Grace Church, Osceola, Ind. (Greg Serafino, senior pastor), has been waiting for. He will undergo a long-anticipated kidney transplant on September 16, 2021. His donor is Ashley Sipocz, who is also from the Osceola church.
John was diagnosed with kidney disease in April 2019 and approved for the Donor List last year at the VA Medical Center in Pittsburgh.
After Ashley was approved as a donor, John organized a GoFundMe account to raise funds for expenses that Ashley and her family might incur and would not be otherwise be covered. Click here to access the campaign.
