Saving Sara

Sara Healy and her twin sister Jana were born with Cystinosis. The rare, genetic disease eventually leads to end-stage renal failure. Jana received a kidney from her sister in 2013 and now Sara needs a kidney. A generous, anonymous donor has offered to donate their kidney to Sara! The Healy family is so grateful for the anonymous donor!

Sara will need to have 2 separate surgeries. The first surgery is July 18th. She will have both kidneys removed and be on dialysis for a month. On August 17th, she will receive a kidney from the donor.

Sara will not be able to work for at least 3 months. Money raised will help with her medical expenses, living expenses, and any other expenses she may have during her recovery time.

Thank you and God Bless!
