Moving Mountains for Yendi

Anyone who truly knows my best friend knows how supportive and how kind she is. I can truly say she is always compassionate and if anyone is in need of help. She would take the shirt off her back to give to someone in need. I have seen how strong she is and how she always sees the good.  

Unfortunately Yendis dad was diagnosed with a chronic kidney disease and is in need of a transplant. He is currently on dialysis as his kidneys are only functioning at a 3%. Yendi will be donating her kidney to her dad. She will be paying for all medical expenses for the surgery on top of all the help she currently gives him financially. 

Expenses can add up very quickly not just from paying his treatment to his medicine but also for day to day responsibilities. On top of her full time job Yendi has taken on doing nails for family and friends on the side to help with this goal. I would like to help her meet as much of her goal as I know if the shoe were on the other foot she would do the same. She is planning to have the transplant done by January. Any little helps. I hope you can help move mountains for Yendi and her dad.
