Leukemia, Deaf, Stage 4 Kidney Disease..




Mary Renna, a 42 year old Cancer Survivor has had a long hard life of illness.  The Chemo and Radiation took a big tole on her life and her health.  She was 4 years old when she was diagnosed with T Cell Leukemia and battled it for 3 years, then at age 9 she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphatic Leukemia and was treated for 3 years and they thought she was in remission but it came back at 15 years old and she finally got a Bone Marrow Transplant at 16 years old.  After all of that, she tried to start living somewhat of a good life until her bones started to deteriorate from Vascular Neucrosis (a disease caused by High Doses of Prednisone in the Chemo Process) having to have total hip and shoulder replacement surgeries, she had to go on disability.  Later she got diagnosed with Hep C from the Blood Tranfussions.  In 1996 she went into a coma for 10 days from Menengitis and woke up Deaf!    She has finally been able to move out of her parents home and resides with a roommate (Cousin) in Garner, NC.  But now has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney Disease, but has to travel so much to visit her doctors at Northeast Medical for the Disease, her 1991 Honda is too wore out.  We hope to raise enough money for her to buy a dependable car.  Her disability check does not go but so far.  
 Please do what you can, even if it is just to Share this.  Thank You and God Bless!
Some have asked about sending a check.  You can mail it to: 137 Keck street, Salisbury, NC 28147 and make payable to Mary Renna or Lori Karriker and I will make sure it goes to the right place.  Thank You!!!!!!
