Help our mom!

I am making this gofundme for my mom, Diane smith. As most of you know, my mom has been battling a kidney disease, specifically medullary sponge kidney disease, for many years. It leaves her with chronic kidney stones and excruciating pain almost regularly. Due to her disease, she hasn’t been able to keep a job since April 2017 because of frequent hospital visits.

In June 2017, my mom got some exciting news that she was getting an auto-kidney transplant to help relieve some of her pain. She spent weeks at the Cleveland clinic where she recovered at a remarkable rate.
About a month later, my mom was once again back in the hospital and learned that she had a terrible blood infection as a major complication from her surgery. Unfortunatly this will become a recurrent problem in the future.

As if things couldn’t get worse, my mom has recently become a single mother and has not been getting any financial support whatsoever. She has been struggling to support her three girls, keep up with the bills, and stay out of the hospital. As of December 22, she has been fighting another infection and once again has to go to Ohio to get checked out.

I am making this to show her love and support. She deserves nothing but the best and any amount would be greatly appreciated. Nothing would make us happier if she got better and back on track! Thank you in advance ❤️
