T.J. Spotts, 27, graduated from Douglas High School in 1997, attended University of Nevada, Las Vegas, from 1997 through December 2001, receiving his bachelor’s degree in political science with honors, then went on to Indiana University School of Law where in May 2005 he earned his law degree.
Spotts managed to do all this in spite of being on kidney dialysis since mid-2000, a year and a half before graduating from UNLV.
After waiting almost seven years, Spotts received a new kidney on March 13.
But, amid the happiness of being given back a more “normal” life, Spotts has to figure out how he can pay his bills until he can start working again as a legal researcher and eventually take the bar exam. The family has opened an account, the T.J. Spotts Assistance Fund, at Bank of America, No. 501001214365.
