Andrea Kent's Medical Fund

Our sweet Andrea is sick and needs our help.  As most of you know, she started having problems in February.  Thinking at first it was only a temporary situation, her world was soon turned upside down, being quickly diagnosed with a life changing kidney disease, called FSGS.  Because of complications from the disease and side effects of the medication, she has been unable to work  for the past 8 months, therefore no income in her single parent household. She has been in and out of the hospital, making weekly doctor visits and taking numerous medications on a daily basis.  During this time she has also amassed increasing hospital, doctor and medicine bills.  Through answered prayers, she is now at the Mayo Clinic.  She has started initial testing and treatment and is daily learning new things about her disease and her condition.  And although so grateful to be there, new  and daily growing expenses are being incurred while there.  One possible medication for her will be $14,000 per treatment, needing it every other week.  She still has a long, long road ahead of her.    You will never, ever know how loved she feels from all of the calls, texts and most importantly the prayers.  Anything donated will be used to help defray all the costs of her treatments.  Her prayer is just that she can get back to Arkanasas and get back to being Mom to Truly, friend to many and favorite coach to all her gym babies.  All donations are appreciated more than words can express!
