Ron Springer, seated at right, who awaits a kidney transplant is surrounded by his family, from left, seated, wife Shelly Springer and grandson; back, daughters Madison Springer and Natasha Willard, and son-in-law Zack Willard.

Ron Springer had his first kidney infection in second grade. He spent 30 days in the hospital without visitors and thought he wasn’t ever leaving.

When he was finally able to go home, he had to return a couple days later due to complications. He’s battled issues with his kidneys ever since.
