Donate...to help me Donate!

Friends -

Help me with the costs so I can donate a kidney this fall.

I am a match for a woman in desperate need of a kidney transplant! This is miraculous and I intend to give her my kidney regardless of the costs. God has invited me into this incredible moment to celebrate life – please join in!!

My Expenses: 
-Flights (I live in CO and the surgery will be in MD; my husband will be traveling with me)
-Hotel (I expect to be living in hotel for about 7 days after the surgery before I am cleared to fly home)
-Food
-Childcare (I have an 8 month old daughter)
-Pet Care (I have a super cute puppy and a mean, but loveable cat)
-Unpaid time off work (after all my sick/vacation time is used)

100% of any unused funds will be donated directly to the Living Donor Assistance Center .

I will ONLY use the funds for: 
-Travel expenses for myself and my caretakers 
-Food during the travel and recovery period
-Childcare after surgery when I am not able to care for my daughter and my husband is at work (or needs a break)
-Any medical costs that are not covered by the University of Maryland Transplant Department  
-Pet care while I am away for the surgery 
-Hotel expenses for myself and my caretakers while I am away for the surgery

If I am not able to raise these funds all of my expenses will have to be covered by myself and the woman to whom I am donating. 

Please help take some of the stress out of this stressful situation. If you have ever considered donation but have not been able - start here! Be part of my kidney donation today!

I will be getting the surgery at the University of Maryland Transplant Center . The Surgery will happen this fall. To protect her anonymity I will not be providing the name of the woman to whom I am donating. 

Thank you so much!
