Please Help My Mother Get a New Kidney

My mom recently found out from her team of doctors that she is eligible for a kidney transplant! We're so happy about that! 

Now, we have to take the necessary steps to get the transplant surgery she need like making sure she has a nest egg during her caregiving months. 

Currently, my mom is on dialysis three times a week which is a burden for an active person. A new kidney could really help her live a more fruitful, productive life and be available for my three brothers and me, all of our spouses, and all of her grandchildren for many, many years to come. 

The financial person on her medical team said that she has to have $6000 as a nest egg during her recovery period in order to move forward. We want to make this happen! Will you help? 

If you can help at all, we would all be so very, very appreciative!

Thank you!
