THIS IS AN URGENT CALL FOR HELP
The day before Thanksgiving, beautiful young mother and business owner, Lauren Tignor, was sent to the emergency room.
Why? Lauren was in kidney failure without even knowing it. This vivacious and intelligent woman had only 10% use of her kidneys.
After days in the hospital in Savannah, her condition only deteriorated. She was transported via ambulance to Piedmont Hospotal in Atlanta. Finally she was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Primary Hyperoxaluria.
This means she needs A NEW LIVER AND A NEW KIDNEY. This disorder causes her liver to improperly breakdown a substance called oxylate. This oxylate has slowly caused life threatening damage to Lauren’s kidneys.
Her situation could not be more serious. As a single mother to a feisty and intelligent three year old and a business owner, everything is on the line.
In her condition, she suddenly cannot work. She is awaiting transplant and will need every dollar possible to pay her bills and ALSO to pay for life saving anti-rejection medication, food, and lodging near the hospital in Atlanta, child care for her son in a new city....the list could go on.
