Help Cheryl Donate A Kidney

I have some exciting news to share!  My best friend Cheryl Norman  has done the preliminary testing for kidney donation for another amazing friend Kristina Barringer. Kristina and her husband Jeff have been friends of ours for over 20 years. Kristina is currently on dialysis and her body is not cooperating. She is an incredible soul and a genuine person. Her husband Jeff has already traveled to Arizona to do the testing but, unfortunately the Mayo Clinic decided that Jeff wouldn't be a viable candidate for donation. 

 Cheryl saw Jeff's Facebook post asking for help . I filled 
Cheryl in on Kristina's situation and she decided, without hesitation, to try and help. Knowing Cheryl as well as I do, I was not surprised.  She never ceases to amaze me!

All that being said, Cheryl just received a call from the Mayo Clinic in Arizona and has scheduled the week long testing to  be a living donor! If she does not match Kristina, she will be an "Angel" donor, which will move Kristina to the top of the list. So in any case, Cheryl will be donating a kidney, possibly saving two lives! This will  take at least two week long trips to Arizona.

Her testing is scheduled to begin October 2nd. This is where you come in. We need your help in getting Cheryl's expenses paid while testing at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. Hotel, daily meals, transportation and time off work are expenses that quickly add up. If you could spare at least $5  to help Kristina, Cheryl and Jeff through this journey it would be greatly appreciated. They are three of the most kindhearted, generous people I've ever known in my life. Please donate what you can and share with your friends and family.
