NC Teacher needs a Kidney!

Not long ago I got a call from my best friend, who I've known since we were 4 years old(32 years). Jim said, "Hey brother, I need ya to come pick me up from the hospital, I've gone into renal faliure." When we were 18 Jim was diagnosed with a chronic kidney disease (FSGS), and was told he would eventually need a kidney transplant.  Through the grace of God he has made it another 18 years, and in an incredible act of selflessness, another NC teacher has stepped forward to give Jim one of his kidneys.  So far it has been working out, but the medical bills just keep coming and realistically won't ever stop. The transplant surgery and it's cost is only half the battle.  Anti Rejection Drugs and there costs will become part of his daily lfe in one form or another forever.
How is he going to make it on a teachers salary?  This is where we come in! I dont know a more selfless hard working man than Jim Kline. For the 10 years he has been a teacher I watched Jim every year care more about his students then himself. Jim has been this way his whole life, family, friends, strangers, Jim's selfless acts of kindness and putting others before his own desires has been a trait he has carried his whole life. He was born to be a teacher and our children need more Jim Kline's!!
What we are trying to raise will probably only be a drop in the bucket of his total life time medical care. 

Because Jim and his doner are both teachers, the surgery has been scheduled for this summer, end of June. This is so they can both have time to recover before the new School Year starts.  We dont have long till the major medical expenses start rolling in, Jim is responsible for paying the medical costs for both himself and his donors care as well. This is a massive undertaking on a SingleTeachers Salary!!!! Please Help Jim, and Share this with anyone you think can. I have never met someone that deserves our help more then this man.
