Living expenses

My name is Renee Hodges and I am the primary care provider for my youngest son Dylan Hughes.  Dylan was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when he was 10 and for a while he did really well with his treatments. After a few years he started to deteriorate and has suffered 8 collapsed lungs and a multitude of severe infections that have permanently damaged his lungs.  We found out at the end of July that Dylan's only hope now is a lung transplant and the transplant team at Duke gave us 4-6 weeks to relocate and as his primary care provider I too must relocate to Durham.  The monthly expenses for living in downtown Durham are extremely high (so far estimates are around 2300.00 a month not including groceries parking and gas) and we are researching every available avenue.  That being said, not only will we be losing my income but I will be displaced from home for up to a year.  We will be so grateful and blessed with any donations we receive. If you can't donate please send up as many prayers as you can and please share this page!  Thank you for taking the time to read our story.
