Addison native, kidney donor thankful for hometown support
ADDISON – When Mayor Rich Veenstra’s declared Oct. 13, 2013, NephCure Foundation Day in Addison, David Bacarella felt a sudden rush of pride.
“It didn’t dawn on me until I was there that I’m from Addison,” said Bacarella who graduated from Addison Trail High School in 1984.
NephCure aims to find the cause and cure for Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), a rare kidney disease, which Bacarella’s 16-year-old daughter, Gina, was diagnosed with at age 4.
