News on Konnan's need for a kidney transplant, and a powerful interview from Konnan
January 6th happens to be Konnan's birthday. January 6th also is the 20 year anniversary of Konnan's pro wrestling debut. Most of us celebrate birthdays and anniversaries with parties, gatherings, and cake. On January 6th, Konnan will be spending his time performing Dialysis on his Kidneys and preparing for Hip Surgery scheduled for Monday January 8th. It is very difficult to ever get the wrestling community together for any reason. I am hoping under the circumstances this can happen. By now you are aware Konnan needs a Hip Replacement. As unfortunate as that may be, his severe pain and degenerating hip probably saved his life. It was the very preparations for hip surgery that led to the discovery Konnan is in need of a kidney transplant. And fast. This past Thursday, Konnan appeared on our webcast and spoke about his ailment. And as doctors told him, if the kidney ailment was not discovered, he likely would have went into cardiac arrest in a matter of months. Many of you saw Konnan on TNA Impact very recently. Since that appearance, Konnan has lost 35 pounds. As he described, this illness is literally eating his muscles away. To the credit of many caring fans, some have offered their Kidney for transplant. If you are O Negative which is Konnan's blood type, or even O Positive, you could be a donor. Unfortunately, the cost for Kidney Transplant surgery is in excess of $35,000. Konnan does not have any medical insurance. Konnan is planning on having the surgery in Mexico because of the lower cost. In the United States, Kidney Transplant could cost $80,000 to $100,000. DONATION INFORMATION TNA made a very generous gesture to Konnan by loaning him the money for his Hip Replacement Surgery. However Konnan is on his own with his Kidney Transplant. With his blessing, we have set up a drive to raise money to cover the expenses so Konnan can have his Kidney Transplant. There have been countless numbers of fans, wrestlers, websites, and wrestling companies wanting to help Konnan in his true hour of need. Now you have the opportunity to do so. A Paypal account and email address (GetWellKonnan@aol.com) has been setup so everyone can send donations. Every penny donated will go towards Konnan's Kidney Transplant Surgery. If you do not have a Paypal account, setting one up takes 5 minutes. If you prefer to send a donation by mail, an address is listed at the bottom of this article. For Paypal Donations, click the button link below. Or if you visiting Paypal directly, use the email address below for Donation information: Physical link directly to Paypal Donation Page Donate $1, $10, $100, anything you can send. Can you imagine if every wrestling fan sent even $1? The cost for his surgery would be paid in a second. *** You can include a private message to Konnan as well when sending your paypal donation. All donations and messages will be received by Konnan. *** CHARITY AUCTIONS ON EBAY Anyone that has a wrestling item, memorabilia, anything they would like to donate, please send your information to Anthony DeBlasi @ baybkge@aol.com. We will place all items on Ebay and all revenue from those sales will be given to Konnan as well. SEND A DONATION, CARD, LETTER BY MAIL Below is the mailing address for anyone who would like to mail a donation, even a card and/or letter to Konnan. Any checks or money orders should be made out to Konnan. Send them to: c/o Konnan PO Box 140573 Howard Beach, NY 11414-0573 Again it is very difficult to ever see the wrestling community come together for any reason. I am hopeful that in this case it will. There is no excuse why every fan, website, wrestling company, wrestler doesn't take a moment to help this man out. We've set up all avenues on behalf of Konnan so assistance can be made for him. Now it is up to you. I strongly recommend you listen to Konnan's appearance on our show Thursday evening. It brought a tear to many eyes. LISTEN TO KONNAN'S MESSAGE http://prowrestlingwebcast.libsyn.com/index.php?post_category%3dkonnan (1/4/07) Konnan has done so much for the wrestling world over the last 20 years. Let's return the favor and show our appreciation to Konnan
