Support Audrey's kidney transplant
Support Audrey’s kidney transplant and help us find a donor.
Audrey has been fighting chronic kidney disease for the past five years, as a secondary complication of having type one diabetes since childhood. Unfortunately, the disease progressed rather rapidly, and she is now facing end-stage renal failure, which will require a life-saving kidney transplant. Audrey is only 35 years old and deserves to have many more happy and healthy years ahead of her.
Audrey has been working harder than ever these past few years, working overtime as a paramedic, through the pandemic, to make sure she can save enough money to cover the costs of her illness and complications, as well as sustain a period of disability, while waiting for and recovering from a transplant.
Unfortunately, many unexpected costs are associated with transplant surgeries, including transportation, lodging, and lost wages for a potential living donor. The recovery period could be weeks, or months, long. The money we are trying to raise will go toward paying these costs for a donor, to make sure their expenses are covered.
This is a very stressful time for Audrey. She is attempting to continue to live her normal life; working as long as she can, and taking care of her fur babies. She is also an animal rescuer/foster and still constantly takes in animals in need until they can find good homes. All while balancing continuous medical procedures and declining health. Knowing that a potential donor and other expenses would be taken care of financially, will be a huge relief to her.
Any additional funds will be donated to charities that assist others with transplant needs, or will go toward assisting diabetics in receiving their life-sustaining medication.
We are asking for your help in any way that you are able; donating, sharing our fundraiser, or spreading the word about living kidney donation and Audrey’s need for one.
If you are interested in finding out if you are a potential match for Audrey, please contact either one of us with any questions you may have, or visit: www.LVHN.org/livingdonor to get started in the screening process. Statistically, fewer than 1 in 10 applicants are approved as a suitable match, so the more people interested, the better the chances are!
If you know Audrey, you know she is not one to ask others for help, she is usually the one helping! It’s so important right now that we do what we can to support her, while her life depends on it. She is so hopeful that this process will go as quickly and smoothly as possible, so she can continue the work she does to help people and animals in her community! Let’s help her reach her goals and live a long, healthy life!
