ASHLEY'S KIDNEY TRANSPLANT

WHEN I WAS 16 YEARS OF AGE, I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A KIDNEY DISORDER KNOWN AS GLOMERULONEPHRITIS WITH 50% KIDNEY FUNCTION. GLOMERULONEPHRITIS IS A TYPE OF KIDNEY DISEASE IN WHICH THE PART OF YOUR KIDNEYS THAT HELP FILTER WASTE AND FLUIDS FROM THE BLOOD IS DAMAGED. I HAVE BEEN UNDER THE SUPERVISON OF A NEPHROLOGIST FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS. I AM NOW 26 YEARS OLD AND AT 12% KIDNEY FUNCTION AND NOW NEED A TRANSPLANT. THE PROCEDURE ITSELF IS COVERED BY INSURANCE BUT I STILL HAVE A LOT OF MEDICAL BILLS PRE-OP AND POST OP WITH LABS, DR VISITS, TRAVEL, ETC. I WILL ALSO BE OFF WORK 8-12 WEEKS FOR RECOVERY AND WILL BE ON IMMUNOSUPPRESENT MEDICATION FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. I AM TRYING VERY HARD TO COVER THESE BILLS MYSELF AND SAVE MONEY TO HELP WHILE I AM OFF WORK BUT THERE IS NOT ENOUGH MONEY FOR ALL THE BILLS I HAVE RECIEVED. IF YOU COULD PLEASE HELP ME, IT WOULD BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED. THANK YOU SO MUCH AND GOD BLESS.
