Kelly's Kidney gift to Amanda Smith

Amanda Ludwig Smith, cousin to Kelly Brister Southern, has had a rare kidney disease for over 18 years.  Currently she receives dialysis 3 days a week and is on the National Kidney Registery.  The waiting list is about 6 years.  Kelly and other family members tested to be a donor.  Miraculously Kelly was a match!!  The surgery will take place September 1, 2017 and recovery is approximately 8-10 weeks.  This page is a place to support Kelly during recovery while missing work.  She is self employed.  What a selfless act of Love! Thanks be to God!
