My Mother's Kidney Donation

"I and my [Mother] are one." - John 10:30

For the great woman who gave me life, I am now returning the favor.

Earlier this year, my mother and I underwent several exams to determine if I would be a compatible kidney donor. After intensive testing, I have the privilege to give my mother one of my kidneys.

The surgery will transpire this December at Northwestern Medicine here in Chicago. She must take a leave of absence for a few months for her recovery. Being the head of her household, her funds will be very limited.

I am asking for those who can afford it, to make a single contribution of $60. Because the duration of the campaign is now until the end of December, $15 bi-weekly donations and/or $30 bi-monthly donations for a total of $60 is asked for those who can't afford the full donation at one time. The contributions will go toward her mortgage payments, utilities, food, and other household essentials.

For those who donate, I will personally send a letter/card signed by my mother and I sharing our gratitude.

We thank each and every donor in advance for your thoughtfulness, compassion, and your sacrifice. May God bless you for your humble contribution and may He use you to be a blessing again to someone else. Peace and prosperity to you all.
