In November 2016, my kidneys failed and I began having life-sustaining dialysis treatments. Dialysis is life-saving, but is not a cure. I am blessed to have the offer of a kidney from a living donor. This offers the best possible chance for those in kidney failure. In the next month or so, we will be traveling to Chicago for testing. If all goes well, the transplant will then be scheduled.
My insurance will pay the direct costs of the transplant, but there are many associated costs that are not covered. I am seeking donations to help pay for my family's travel, lodging, and other expenses as well as those of my donor's family. Being away from home, possibly multiple times, for many days will be very expensive.
If you would like to help, it would be greatly appreciated. More than anything, please pray for us as we embark upon this journey!
