My son LaVelle was a normal teen that graduated from high school and went off to college to further his football career. March 2016, his freshman year, LaVelle contracted menginitis while away at school that had a devastating effect. Since that initial diagnosis he had 4 strokes, congestive heart failure, liver failure, and kidney failure. While not killing him physically or mentally these illnesses have ended his goal of becoming a football player and has plaugued our family. Through it all Lavell has remain strong and up lifting.
Everything has come back to normal except his kidney. Velle has been on dialysis for over a year. We are now able to take the next step, kidney transplant. I'm blessed to be a match for my son I wouldn't want it any other way. As a mother I want to give my son as much as I possibly can and allowing him to live with my kidney.
I am asking for assistance with medical cost and lost wages from work as I will not be allowed to work for a number of weeks following the surgery. My son, daughter, and I appreciate any help that can be given!
