My little sis is saving my life!

This is my little sister, Tonja.  Tonja is a devoted wife and a mother to 4 beautiful children (3 teenagers and a 4 yr old).  She is a High School teacher and also serves our country in the United Sates Air Force.  Her husband is a police officer and is also in the Air Force.  Their children are in every sport imaginable.  To say her time is scarce would be a complete understatement.  Now let me tell you what this beautiful soul is doing for me.  About a year ago I was told that I had reached the final stages of kidney failure due to a genetic kidney disease that runs in our family.  My amazing sister has agreed to be my donor and we are set for surgery on Dec 15.  I can’t tell you how grateful I am.  ❤️ My insurance will pay for her procedure, but she will not receive pay for her recovery time since it is an elective surgery on her part.  This is where you all come in!  Please do me a favor and help me reach this goal.  If you can donate, please do and share this with your friends.  If you aren’t able to donate, please help us by sharing.  Thank you in advance!
