Transplant for Tinnk

Good Morning World, I’m hoping I can reach a lot of people not only for money but because I know a lot of you can relate and I also need the positive feedback! My name is Tearia pronounced (T’Air) but everybody calls me Tinnk and I’m currently trying to be tested for a dual transplant (Lung and kidney) at Mayo Clinic (Minnesota).
Back story :
At the tender age of 17 (2010) I was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease FSGS (scarring of the kidneys) with an unknown underlying cause which may or may not be related to lupus (They can’t figure it out) this cause me to have to start dialysis shortly after my 18th birthday(2011) . I’ve been on dialysis 11 years which surpasses the timeframe that it continues to work. And Lately I’ve been seeing and feeling the effects of depending on dialysis to long ! My doctors and I feel like now would be a good time as any for transplant because I’m still young and fairly healthy. But in 2016 I started having problems with my lungs due to all my kidney complications and in August of 2021 they worsened making it that I need a dual transplant (Lung and Kidney). Because of my health I am unable able to work which causes a set back to the cost of travel which is causing me to be able to be tested for transplant ! The Mayo Clinic is the nearest hospital that does lung transplants with my health history and on top of that both transplants are between 100,000. I just turned 30 in November and my life has been affected the last 11 years and I still manage to wake up and smile …If you can help you will be appreciated ! Thank you 

Where the money will go:

(Pre transplant)
room and board

(When I get the call)
Airfare (because the hospital is 9- 16 hours hours away depending on which days and hours the bus runs) after receiving there call I be there in 4 hours to receive the transplant

(Post transplant )
Room and board because I have to stay in state for 90 days ( mainly due to a lung transplant being a very risky surgery)

Thank you again.
