Tad Suwa is a Sacramento firefighter who wants nothing more than to be the man his family needs, which includes being a firefighter/medic. Instead, he’s confined to a desk because of end stage renal disease. For now, he undergoes nightly dialysis treatments, but he’s hoping for a kidney transplant. Dialysis interferes with time he could be spending with his family, fishing and serving his community as a firefighter. A transplant would free him and his family to live their lives again.
