A Kidney Transplant Brings New Hope

It takes strength to believe the unbelievable, see the invisible and hope for the impossible...and it takes a village.

Dear Friends and Well-Wishers,

Ludis is one strong cookie and I wish you all knew her personally.    

Ludis is 24 years old and her kidneys have been shutting down…working at only 15%.  She has been living with Chronic Kidney Disease where her kidneys just ‘never grew up’.  They were very small – like that of a 5 year old.

On October 1, 2018, after waiting 4 years, Ludis received ‘the call’.  The wonderful doctors and staff at Boston Medical took her under their care and performed her kidney transplant.  Prayers and gratitude to her anonymous donor -- a giver of life ♥ and blessings.

It has been tough going with her recovery but she is taking it one day at a time and each day brings new strength and hope.

Ludis, in a nutshell, has a quiet presence, a wonderful sense of humor, an amazing work ethic and a heart filled with love.  She is a young person with an old soul who appreciates and finds beauty in the little things.  Her energy makes you feel good to be around her.

I am setting up this Go Fund Me in order to assist with the heavy financial aspect attributed to the surgery, life-long medications, medical deductions, co-pays, in-home care, being out of work, etc.  Any amount, large or small, would be a welcome support and very much appreciated. 

If a donation is not in your budget at this time, we would be grateful for your prayers as she continues to stay and heal in a protected environment during her recovery.  It will be months before she will be able to work again.

The gift of life is a most incredible gift.
Grateful – Honored – Blessed – HOPEFUL.
Thank you.  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  It is difficult to ask for help and your thoughts and generosity will go so far to help Ludis recover and continue to shine bright.
