Veteran in need of a Kidney Donor

Quartermaster Jim Bertine - 3/4/2024

Today, the Post received an email requesting anyone who may qualify as a possible kidney donor for a Navy Veteran, Martin "Marty" McGuirk, who lives in Gainsville, VA. His aunt, Paulina Sokoloff, started the request by contacting VFW National. VFW National directed her to find a local post. The State sent the ALL POINTS email to reach a wider net for possible donors.

 

A donor can be between 21 & 70 years of age, must be healthy, and have excellent kidney function. This link will help you find out if you can assist Marty in obtaining the match he badly needs to continue enjoying his life and his family.

DATA and NOVA Veterans Win Federal Grant to Help Senior or Disabled Veterans Get to Vaccination Sites

Reston, VA – MAY 5, 2021 – The Dulles Area Transportation Association (DATA) and the Northern Virginia Veterans Association (NOVA Veterans) have been awarded federal funding for a joint project to provide veterans who are disabled or over 65 with transportation to COVID-19 vaccination appointments. While vaccination availability has increased, an escalating critical transportation crisis is preventing our most vulnerable veterans from getting vaccinated. This is particularly problematic for those veterans who receive their medical care from distant Veterans Administration medical facilities and are without reliable transportation.
