I need the funds immediately because the dialysis is $ 4,000 per month and a kidney transplant costs $ 100,000.
Your funds will help me with a lot of my medicine and recovery after I have received the kidney transplant. It will help me with the medicines that my insurance does not cover and will help me with the essentials that I need for personal upkeep because I will not be able to work for a period of time. I have already exhausted all of my early retirement money. I have been working on the mission field for the last 12 years in Beaufort, SC, I have been teaching and preaching the Gospel for over 45 years, always worked a full time job and never been on the Church payroll! I returned to South Carolina for two purposes; (1) to help take care of my ill 81 year old mother, and (2) to plant a mission work on St. Helena Island/Beaufort, SC to "save souls & to keep souls saved!" And I used all of the money that I earned and my early retirement money for those purposes and to take care of my other living expenses as well. (My apartment and the rent for the church building - to rent with the option to buy).
Other ways that your contribution will help:
I have an urgent situation because my kidney is functioning at a level of only 5-11%. Dialysis is sustaining me, but a live kidney would give me more time and I could continue to live a full and productive life. I am on dialysis for 12 hours weekly, but a healthy kidney is designed to take out the toxins in my body 24 hours a day.
