About The Event ~
In April 2007, Mario Salgado was diagnosed with renal 5 kidney failure and put on twelve hours of dialysis per week to sustain his life. Five years later and Mario just received on March 10, 2012, a kidney transplant at Virginia Mason Hospital in Seattle, WA. Mario is 37 years old, married, and father of 16 yr. old Marques, 9 yr. old Mackenzie & 10 month old Manny. Until his recent transplant little over a month ago he worked as a full time time breakfast cook at Wenatchee Rooftop. Mario presently has $6,000.00 in his transplant fund at HelpHOPELive.
