    Last week Konnan had [COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]hip [/FONT][COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]replacement[/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR] surgery in Mexico and is now back home. He is in alot of pain, but no complications have surfaced from the hip surgery.

    Now Konnan prepares himself for his biggest battle, Kidney [COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Transplant [/FONT][COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Surgery[/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR]. As you heard in our audio interview with Konnan, doctors told him he would have gone into cardiac arrest in a matter of months if his [COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]kidney[/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR] ailment wasn't discovered addressed.

    Since his last appearance on TNA Impact, Konnan has lost over 40 pounds. His illness is literally eating away at his [COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]muscles[/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR].

    To the credit of many caring fans,some have offered their Kidney for [COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]transplant[/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR]. 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, [COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Kidney [/FONT][COLOR=blue! important][FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Transplant[/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR] could cost $80,000 to $100,000.

    With Konnan's blessing,Georgiann Makropoulos and myself started a drive worldwide to raise money to pay for Konnan's kidney transplant. As of this writing, a total of $3,000 has been raised. All of us are touched with the amount of support the wrestling community has shown towards helping Konnan.

    Konnan is too weak to do any type of audio interview at this moment. But he sends along his thanks and is very grateful for the help. To quote Konnan, he said that the love and help he is receiving makes his 20 year wrestling career worth it that much more.

    $3,000 raised in two weeks is excellent. But we have to raise so much more. Obtaining a donor for a kidney transplant is critical. But without raising the $$$, the surgery cannot be done. We aretalking about something that needs to be done very soon. We ask everyone out there to please take the time and assist in any way you can NOW. Whether it's a financial donation, a donated item towards our Ebay auctions, or even just spreading the word.

    Below are several ways you can help. As I've said before, even if every wrestling fan donated $1. Or even $5. His surgery would be paid for in a second.

    He is too old.

    He suffered the injury in wrestling match, right?

    if yes, why the hell does he want to continue wrestling when it nearly/is taking his life.

    Well I guess the high of the fans and the love of the business might keep him going. I mean if I was a wrestler I would do as much as I can for the fans and he is probably the same. I think its a good story and I hope he does good.
