A message from Heather and Rebecca
Over the past 6 months Rebecca and I have been going through all the tests necessary to be cleared for kidney transplant surgery. I was just cleared this week to be Rebecca's donor. I feel very blessed to be able to offer this gift to my sister. The timing of my clearance is very fortunate for us since just this past week Rebecca was vomiting nonstop and was admitted to the hospital for dehydration. While performing routine blood work they discovered that Rebecca's kidneys were functioning at only 5%.
While the majority of the medical expenses will be covered by insurance, there will be many out of pocket expenses. I will be required to remain in the Seattle area for two weeks following surgery and will then need four more weeks of recovery at home. Rebecca will be in the Seattle area for much longer to monitor any possible signs of rejection.
We would be sincerely grateful for any assistance you are able to provide. We understand that times are tough for everyone right now, so any amount you are able to donate would be greatly appreciated. You can either donate using this site or mail checks made out to Heather Egebrecht directly to Bank Reale 5205 Road 68 Pasco, WA 99301.
Heather (Nash) Egebrecht and Rebecca Nash
Thanks Heather and Rebecca.
