Stephanie Joyner is a 34 year old fighter who is currently battling stage five kidney disease brought on by diabetes. She was diagnosed with diabetes at age 8 and has been living with kidney disease for two years. Her disease has escalated to the point where she urgently needs a kidney transplant. She has already had three eye surgeries due to diabetes and endured a life of painstaking treatment. Stephanie’s transplant surgery requires a 17,000 payment in addition to several other ongoing medical costs.
Stephanie is best known for her spirit, and she has never let this 26 year-long hardship dim it! It shines most brightly in her church and on the field. As a child she was a cheerleader, and as an adult she became a volunteer coach. As a coach for the Cougar Cubs for many years she, with her strong spirit, has touched the lives of young girls by showing them the importance of never giving up and trying your hardest. She is a role model for her young cheerleaders and for all those battling diabetes and kidney disease. Now Stephanie needs cheerleaders to cheer her on and support her through this next and very difficult stage in her battle!
Stephanie's friends and family are asking everyone to pray for her as well as to get tested to see if they are a match for a kidney donation. She needs someone between the ages of 18-55 with blood type A or O. In addition, any financial donation amount to pay for her ongoing treatment and future surgery costs would be greatly appreciated! Please, get tested to see if you can share your spare with Stephanie who is most deserving of such a blessing. She is someone who has given so much to her family, friends, and cheerleaders - it's time for us to give back to her. Stephanie and her family are facing enough without the additional stress of high medical costs. Let's cheer her on in this difficult battle and help ensure her strong spirit can continue to brighten the lives of her husband, three step children, parents, friends, church, cheerleaders, and community for many years to come.
