Living Kidney Donor Expenses

Hi, I'm Mike. In 1999 I was diagnosed with Fabry disease, a lysosomal storage disorder. In plain terms, my kidneys are failing because deposits are hindering their ability to filter. I need a transplant, but I don't have the funds to help my living donor give her kidney to me, or cover the expense of her stay while she's here in Rochester. I lost my marketing job about two years ago and I  wasn't sure how much to ask for, but I would appreciate any amount you are able to give. I have never asked for anything in my life (except for job leads). To those who are kind enough to help, I will write a personal note of thanks and perhaps a poem (for whoever would like one).
