Wes Hendrix has had kidney disease for many years. He was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy. He received a kidney transplant from his mother several years ago but the transplant has been showing signs of failing for the past year. Wes will need to begin dialysis soon. He works full-time as the Shipping Manager & Logistics Coordinator for DesignWay Products in Lewisburg. Recently engaged, Wes has maintained a very positive attitude. Last year his team raised over $3,000 for the Kidney Walk and they are well on their way of surpassing that goal for this year. Wes has a great deal of empathy for people with kidney disease and knows that the money raised will go directly to help people with the disease.
