Help Fight Cancer & Kidney Failure

(By the way…we HATE cancer too!)

We have no idea how life can take a major turn and change everything…overnight.  Such is the case for Jacqueline Wilson.

Jacqueline moved to Atlanta a few years ago thinking she would work a few more years as an Educator in the Marietta School System and then retire to enjoy her years with her husband.  Life has since caused a drastic turn and put her in the fight for her health…and life.

What started out as frequent trips to the bathroom turned out to be a more serious, deteriorating, rare kidney disease.  Jacqueline was diagnosed with Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), a rare disease that attacks the kidney’s filtering units (glomeruli) causing serious scarring which leads to permanent kidney damage and even failure. During a routine doctor visit, Jacqueline was rushed to ER as tests revealed she was in complete renal failure.  Jacqueline began dialysis in May 2018 and she is now in need of a kidney transplant.

As a fighter, Jacqueline managed through her battle with her kidneys, but would soon find herself in a whole different battle – cancer.  Jacqueline noticed she was spotting/bleeding and decided to see her doctor.  A visit to her gynecologist and subsequent tests/biopsies revealed the presence of Endometrial Cancer.  Doctors moved quickly and performed a total hysterectomy this past week.  Jacqueline is recovering and waiting for the pathologist’s report for next steps and future treatment.

As imagined, Jacqueline is unable to work and needs our help with basic living expenses and medical bills.  Many of you will agree that this is just too much for one person to deal with.  Jacqueline is not alone. That’s why her family and friends are rallying to help her in this fight. 

Won’t you join us in helping Jacqueline by tackling some of her basic financial needs while she tackles these monumental health challenges.  Your donation, of any amount, will help to alleviate the urgent financial need, stress, and worry while Jacqueline focuses on her recovery and continued fight. 

Many heartfelt thanks for the outpouring of love, prayers, and support from each of you!
