Timothy Andrew Main   OWENSBORO, KY


Dessa Main a 31 year old warrior. Since the age of 17 she has battled Chronic Kidney failure. She was placed on dialysis for 3 months after both kidneys failed my mother donated to her a kidney. The kidney lasted 13 months before failing due to rejection. She then was placed on dialysis for 9 years and many surgeries. Chris Main her younger brother donated a kidney to her and lasted 3 years and 11 months before a rare disease attacked the kidney and body known as Calciphylaxis. The disease is only found in less than 4% of renal failure patients. There is no cure or treatment for the calciphyaxis. Vanderbilt, OMHS, and the Mayo Clinic has done all they can do to help. This is a very prolonged, very painful way to die. Today we found out that she has no life-insurance. As a family we have raised what we can now we are reaching out to each of you. If the Lord does not give her a miracle she has nearly a week to live. She is an apostolic young lady that has based her life around the Lord and Has been used in the sign-language ministry. Please donate what you can and if nothing can be donated please lift us up in prayer as well. With the funds that are raised we will hold a funeral and make her last wishes come true. God is in control and we want his will. Please share with your friends, family, and churches. God bless.

Rev. T.A.Main and Main Family.

You have always had a beauty that glows and surrounds you. It is deep and everlasting. You are one of the few I have the privelage of knowing who is genuine with your love, kindness and faith. It takes an amazing young lady with courage that only a few possess to maintaine your ability to smile with all you have had to endure. I pray daily for a miracle, after all your dad is walking proof miracles are not a thing of the past. Please keep smiling, you have a beautiful smile. Knowing you is a blessing. Love to you and your family....Shellene
