Hello everyone. Sorry for the lack of posts lately. This has been a really busy month. I just wanted to say that April had her MRA(mri) and it showed that she had a small brain aneurysm. They sent her back for a more detailed MRA on that section. The results came back showing that she DOES NOT have an aneurysm! Hooray! So we are still not sure where she stands on her transplant. I will keep everyone updated. Thanks again for your donations, prayers and kindness. Happy New Year!

We had our spaghetti dinner fundraiser this past Friday. A lot of people came and we had a great time. We auctioned off a few crafts, had door prizes, a 50/50, an ugly sweater contest and lots of raffle prizes. We also sold baked goods. It was a success! We are so grateful for all of the donations that we received from companies and people! Thank you's to everyone that helped out and everyone who donated for the benefit and on here! We appreciate it so much!

I can't imagine going through what April Mosley goes through on a daily basis. Her life is pain filled. The PKD caused cysts to grow on her kidneys which in turn, causes a constant state of pain, which then requires taking pain meds just to get through the day. That isn't even the half of it though. Her blood pressure is wildly uncontrolled. She's on multiple bp pills and even that doesn't work. This disease is ravaging her body. She has headaches every day of her life. The pain pills don't even take that pain away. Still this girl trudges on. She tries to be as normal as she can. She's down for Kings Island, camping and fun anytime regardless of the pain she's in. She has been so strong throughout her life and has tried so hard to overcome this disease and not let it get her down. She was fortunate enough to give birth to two children while having this disease. It wasn't easy but she had 'em. Now she's at a crucial time with the PKD. Her kidneys are barely functioning. Her headaches are out of control. She's about to get a MRI so they can check to see if she's about to have an aneurysm because the disease causes that too. Would you see a light in the tunnel? Could you go through this and still function? I'm not sure I could do it. I admire your strength Papie!! I hope that this transplant will fix you so that you can ENJOY life again and so you can go a day or two without the headaches and pain. I love you forever and ever Papie.

My sister was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease when she was 3. When she was 14 years old, she developed high blood pressure from the effects of the disease. She is now 37 and she needs a kidney transplant. Her best friend, Katrina Troutman, always said she would give her a kidney if she ever needed it. Well after all the testing, it turns out that they are a match! So...here we are. They want to have the tranplant after the holidays. Well to be exact, Trina said she wanted to give April her kidney on Dec 27th. I'm not sure if the doctors are on board for that day but we'll see. April does have insurance but there are other costs and expenses that insurance doesn't cover. Please help support her and relieve the financial burden that she carries. Thank you so much!!
