After a visit to the Emergency Room in early February 2012, Steve and Tiffanie Weier learned that Steve had been in kidney failure since January 2011, and he would need a kidney transplant. They were devastated and lost by this news. In addition to kidney failure, Steve also has type II diabetes and high blood pressure. These three conditions are serious by themselves, but combined, they have wreacked havoc on his body. In June of 2012, Steve was successfully placed on the donor list for a kidney, but was told it could take up to 3-4 years to recieve a donation. In February 2013, Steve kidney function had decreased to the point he would need to start dialysis. In March 2013, Steve had surgery in Anchorage to have a PD Catheter placed in his abdomen in preparation for Peritoneal dialysis. Once his catheter had healed, Steve and Tiffanie traveled back to Anchorage for a week to complete dialysis training and Steve is currently doing his Peritoneal dialysis at home. It has been a rough adjustment for Steve, as he is still only sleeping in 1 1/2 hour increments throughout the day/night. Also in March 2013 was classified as legally blind as a complication of his kidney failure. Steve is currently unable to work, drive, read, cook, and many other daily activies as a result of his health complications.

In December 2012, Tiffanie made the couragous decision to find out if she was a match to donate a kidney to Steve. After months of blood tests, urine tests, EKG’s, X-Rays, and other testing, they received the good news that she was, in fact, a perfect match for Steve. The surgery will require Tiffanie to be off work and in Washington State for 6-8 weeks following the transplant along with Steve.

Steve and Tiffanie both were born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska. They were married on July 19, 2008, on her family homestead. Within the first year of marriage they built a cabin on their property and last year they started an addition project, which they've had to put on hold. At this time, Steve and Tiffanie do not have any children but they dream of the day, post successful transplant, they can start a family.

Both are very involved with children in the community. Steve is a youth hockey coach with FAHA, and Tiffanie is a 4-H leader for the Northern Lights Equestrians.
