Cottage Grove man fighting for a second chance
Jim Gorbunow is in a literal fight for his life.
Living as a Type I diabetic for nearly his entire life, the Cottage Grove resident is no stranger to illness. However, a recent discovery that his kidney, which he received in 2000, is only working at 25 percent has him in dire search for a new one. While he waits for the second time on a donor list, Gorbunow, who has faced his own mortality once before, said he is determined to live each day to the fullest.
