Help Angela Save Josh

On Thursday, September 14th, I am donating one of my kidneys to Josh. This will be major surgery, leaving us both unable to work for a while. The purpose of this fundraiser is to help us pay the bills that will not take a break, even though we must.



What Happened:

Last November doctors gave us the news that Josh’s first transplant from 13 years ago was only functioning at 12% and dropping. The kidney was no longer able to keep him alive on its own. Since Thanksgiving 2016, Josh has been on dialysis three times a week, while continuing to work and trying to maintain a somewhat normal life.


After several months of uncertainty due to insurance and other factors the search for a donor began in April. By the beginning of June I received a call from the clinic informing me that we were a match. This news was both a huge relief and also something that neither of us had planned for.


The Plan

Our  original plan was that I would continue to work and be a caregiver for Josh during the first steps of his recovery, but now we will be traveling that path together. I am beyond willing to do anything within my ability to aid in making my best friend and partner feel better. As the saying goes, however, time is money.


Josh’s strength and courage during the past 11 months have been nothing short of amazing. We are both looking forward to healing and moving on with life, and in hopes of making the transition smooth we are asking for your assistance. The money donated to this cause will go toward the medical bills and other expenses that we are beginning  to pile up.


Thank you for taking the time to read our story and thank you for your consideration.
