Help Maureen Get Her New Kidney

Hello everyone. This is being setup on behalf of a great friend of mine Maureen, Mo to those who know her well. Maureen is a lovely mother, wife, and daughter to her family and an outstanding member of her community. Maureen takes pride in her work and raising her wonderful 5 year-old daughter Katarina, but also gives back to her community by participating in cultural events, teaching her daughter a balance between modern and Native ways of life, and volunteering when she is not working hard to provide for her family. Mo is one of the good ones.

Maureen has recently been diagnosed with kidney failure and has been told she will require a transplant. These procedures are extremely expensive, according to http://health.costhelper.com/kidney-transplant.html:

- The average negotiated price, through a health insurance company, is just under $33,500.
- Post surgery costs about $17,000 a year for anti-rejection drugs.
- At DrugsDepot.com, a one-month supply of generic tacrolimus costs about $150-$900 or more, depending on the dose. 

Mo was just recently diagnosed and we need to get as much money together to help her as soon as possible. We need to make sure she is taken care of so she can continue to help raise her daughter and support her family. Please help raise the money needed so she and her family can focus on her treatment, recovery, and well being. Let's get the ball rolling so money is not adding to the stress of recovery. In addition to medical cost, there will be the loss of revenue during the periods of time she is unable to work, let's make sure they don't have to worry about that.

Every dollar helps. Every dollar is one less they have to worry about. Every dollar will be used to keep this family together and strong. Donate what you can, spread the word, and let's all help make sure that this family stays together, happy and healthy, for many more years to come.
