Friends of Amanda

33493808_1539183903850347_r.jpegIf you know Amanda, you know one of the most amazing parts about her is her heart and strength. She is a wonderful mother, a wife, she works, and maintains many friendships with people who love her immensely.  I’m reaching out because I know she needs our help. 

Amanda required a kidney transplant in 2004, which was lovingly donated by her father.  Amanda has end stage renal disease, Stage 4 of 5. Her kidney function deteriorated after multiple kidney rejections in 2015. Due to this, she suffers from  low energy, anemia, high blood pressure, feet and leg cramping on a regular basis all while working and running her household.  Amanda still has her donated kidney, but the function is not at 100% nor will it ever be. 

If she doesn’t have access to her drugs her body will reject her kidney and she will either have to go on dialysis or suffer kidney failure.

Amanda’s medication deductibles are $10,000 and in September it reset.  She is on a tier 4 drug in which insurance will only allow a 31 day supply at a time.  This drug alone is over $1000 FOR A MONTH SUPPLY prior to her deductible being reached.  Amanda’s 7 other mandatory medications are over $150 per month until her $10,000 deductible is reached. 

She is doing all she can do. Tries to get coupons for the meds, juggles bills to make ends meet, restricts her and her family’s life to save whatever she can and she is struggling. Please understand it is the hardest thing for her to ask for help. So I am asking for her. Any little bit helps.

I appreciate anything you can do to help my friend.
