(Really excellent news. Here's some background material on Helms' situation. -- Ross)
Hey folks, there have been a few stories about Jory on this site over the last year and I just wanted to let you all know that he has a kidney transplant scheduled at the end of this month.
Helms, a Chicago Leo grad and one of Ferentz' earliest recruits, has been receiving dialysis treatment 3 days a week for the last 3 years. After a series of radio and tv interviews, along with a benefit event in October, a donor from Cedar Rapids has offered his help.
