Bill's Medical Assistance Fund

Hello.  I have been in end-stage renal failure since late 2016 and while I have been given the gift of a new kidney, my transplant center is hundreds of miles away and I am unable to work right now.  Short-Term Disability is not quite enough to help cover the regular living expenses for my family and the mounting travel expenses.

I hate to ask for help, but it has come time to do so, to supplement until I can return to full-time work and not have to travel 8 hours a day to my hospital - which should be sometime in mid to late December.  I fear financial concerns will force me back to work before I am completely healed which could affect my recovery in adverse ways.

I appreciate any contribution, as it will all help.  

I know what kind of blessing I have been given due from the transplant itself, and if financial conditions improve I will immediately remove this manager.  I am trying this as a way to be able to continue the recovery that is going so well right now.

Thank you for reading this, even if you cannot donate.
