Jamies kidney fund

Hello, my name is Deborah Parker. I have started this fundraiser to attain the money needed to get my daughter a kidney transplant. My daughter Jamie was diagnosed with stage 3 renel cell carcinoma (kidney cancer) in April of 2010. This was the third time she had been diagnosed with cancer. She battled ovarian cancer from age 19-22 and uterine cancer at the age of 25. And then at the still young age of 27 she was faced with the hardest battle and most aggressive cancer yet. In the almost 5 years since she was dianosed she has struggled and bravely fought every single day.  During this bout alone She has undergone 3 surgerys (one of which was to remove her right  kidney because the cancer had caused irreparable damage). She has faced many rounds of chemo and radiation. She has participated in many clinical trials and holistic approaches and  most recently has recieved stem cell transplants in attempt to regrow damaged tissue and strengthen her one remaining kidney.  Over a year ago she was informed that her remaining kidney was failing and that she would now have to receive dialysis mulitple times a week.  
Jamie is in desperate need of a kidney transplant and with every passing day that need gets much greater and far more apparent. Unfortunatly, due to many other health issues caused by cancer treatments has made her inelligable for the organ donar list. So we set out to find her a kidney from a living donor. We have FINALLY found a donor match! However, since this is a living donation the surgerys and aftercare are much more expensive. And without insurance and after many years of treatments and medications, we have used ALL finances and resources and we are unable to come up with all of the money needed.  We were hoping that the grants from the foundations and societys that she is eligible for would have covered it but it did not do so completely.  We have already lost our house and two cars and everything with monetary value. None of that matters because I have my daughter. I can not lose her. It breaks my heart to think that she may not get this kidney due to money, because we can't pay for it and the aftercare that will be needed for some time (medications, trips to the hospital in boston, etc)  So i am reaching out and asking for help. Please help me save my daughter. Jamie is a kind, loving, generous woman who has spent most of her adult life fighting cancer with her head held high and a smile on her face. She has never given up or even felt bad for herself. She soldierd on helping others in her situation. She deserves this chance to live a stronger, healthier life. She deserves to LIVE. Without this kidney she will not get that chance. Please help me give her that chance.
I realize that many family's are going thru similar or more difficult situations and i also realize that this is a difficult time of year for many, so we are very grateful for anything that anyone spare. Any size donation will help get us closer to our goal.  
Thank you and God bless!!
