Donald Kapres, Jr Fund

$162 of $50,000 raised


Donald Kapres, Jr is known as “Donnie.” He is the 62-year-old son of a beloved Pittsburgh Police Sergeant, a devoted husband caring for his terminally ill wife*, an amazing Dad to one daughter, two stepdaughters, and a grandfather of nine and full-time raising two. He is an avid Pittsburgh Steeler fan, a gunsmith by trade, and a hunter and fisherman who genuinely lives off the land to feed his family. Donnie is a man that wouldn’t hesitate to give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.

On March 11, 2021, he was a victim of a house fire. He suffered cardiac arrest, was resuscitated and is now left with an anoxic brain injury and in a vegetative state. His wife and grandsons are safe. Donnie went back into the house to see where the fire started to try and stop it, as he had no insurance. Donnie and his family lost everything and do not have a home to return.

For the past seven months, Donnie has been fighting for his life, but he is a warrior beyond words. He has defied odds by not only surviving but continues to show his will to live. He is off permanent dialysis, opening his eyes, and doing little things that doctors said he would never do.

Donnie’s journey is long and arduous. He is fighting to wean off a ventilator. And he has other conditions such as bed wounds and setbacks with infections and pneumonia. But nothing can stop his spirit from living.

As you can imagine, his medical bills are excessive, and his recovery is long. Donnie needs our help. He has sacrificed and given so much for so many. Please consider giving 4 QUARTERS ($1) so that he can get back into the game of life. Us coming together and sharing a 4 Quarter$ At a Time contribution will help support Donnie’s ongoing medical care and life beyond recovery.

*Donnie’s beloved wife, Angela passed away from her terminal illness on October 15, 2021. Donnie and his grandsons need your help now more than ever.


Thank You All in advance for your generosity!
