Having to have countless birthdays and holidays in the hospital as a child because i was having so many surgeries, iv's, gtube placments, fistulas, a p.d cather, and also alot of strokes that  even caused me to lose my eye sight at one time. Being on dyalsis hasnt been easy due to the fact i have to get stuck with two 16 gage needles 3 times out of the week for years causing me to have absests on my arm witch faced me with alot of sadness at a young age making me very self councencess about my self but 16 years later  i have made it so far from everything and have over came alot i had to go threw and in my life ....So for a year now i have been going to my appointments for a kidney transplant so i can have a "normal" life again" the phycytrist and kidney cordanator team have recently cleared me for the transplant list but they will not activate me intill i have a stable place of my own. I have been looking for a year straight and unfortunately i still havent found any resources to help me gather these funds. I have found an apartment that fits in my budget but it is hard for me to gather up all of the moving expenses and first months rent. Please family and friends If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. i will also be putting up countless updates on how my progress is doing and i will put up lots of pictures. I promise this will be put to good use. Having a home will give me the start of a great future and so much more.

Just giving everyone an update but first I would like to say thank you for all the love and support I've been getting so I can get my apartment to finally get activated on the transplant list. I'm still trying to gather the funds and I had to change the goal slightly because I found out theres a broker's fee so the total amount would be 2,400 and I have 600$ of my own saved up for little things when I move in. Each and everyday I get closer and closer because of the heart's of others. My birthday is coming up on January 8th and all I'm wishing for is the keys to my apartment and I wouldn't want nothing else ever because these are not just the keys for an apartment these are the keys twords my stability, twords my health and twords my education and with this first step it will get me to my next and my next ect..... This will help me build a fruitful happy positive life for myself. Remember if you can't donate please share <3 I'm so close to my dream n thankyou again for the support <3

Im still trying to raise money for my 1 bedroom apartment so they can activate me on the transplant list. I never have asked for handouts but i truly need this to be able to prosper in life to be stable and finish going to school and have a family of my own one day.
