Transplant Expenses

Jimmy was diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy in September of 2013. He is currently on the kidney transplant list and awaiting a match. Although we have excellent insurance coverage, there are still several expenses we will need to pay out of pocket. We will need to remain in atlanta for 4-6 weeks post-transplant. Kristen will be out of work for that amount of time and Jimmy will be out of work for 3 months. We have some sick days banked, but not enough to cover that entire length of time. We also want to be able to compensate our living donor for the money they may lose while he/she is out of work for the one month post-transplant. all funds raised will go into a savings account and remain there until we move forward with the transplant. thank you all so much for your love, prayers, and generosity.
