Transplant Travel Expenses

Our lifelong friend, Deanna Recktenwald, is 19 and in stage 5 kidney failure. Our daughter, Jenna Mize, is 21 and has been approved to be a donor of her left kidney for Deanna. Our family will be flying from Alabama to Tampa for the transplant surgery which is scheduled for June 20, 2019. As Jenna’s caregiver, Jenna and I must stay in Tampa for approximately 3 weeks to recover and then we will fly back to Alabama where she will finish her recovery.
We are hoping you will prayerfully consider donating to our travel expenses. If you feel led to do so, Jenna and our family would like to say thank you. Any money left in this account after our expenses, will be donated to Deanna for her mounting medical bills.
Most importantly, we want to thank you for your prayers. They have indeed been felt. We could not do this without them. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support. Duane, Lisa Mize and family. Philippians 1:3 ✝️
