kidney transplant expenses

My name is Ken Montgomery. I am a 51 year old father of two.   Just after thanksgiving, 2008, I felt like i had a bad case of the flu.  Two days later i went to my doctor and he immediately sent my to the emergency room. Within hours, I was in ICU. My kidneys had failed. I have been on dialysis since.  Three days a week, 4 1/2 hours each treatment.  I am currently on the transplant list, but due to my bloodtype, I was told the wait might long (i'm O neg).  I am hoping to raise living expenses for my family now and when I get a donor.  The hospital recommends you have access to cash because after the surgery, the recovery takes several months. I would encourgae everyone, especially men, to visit a doctor regulary, if you dont deal with your help, it will deal with you.   Thank you for your consideration and listening to my store.  May God continue to bless you.
