Kelley's Kidney Donor Support Fund

$5,320 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 80 people in 16 months
As many of you know, I was recently diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease as a result of an autoimmune condition called IgA nephropathy.  The disease progressed quickly and I learned that I was in urgent need of a kidney transplant.  It has been a difficult few months but we are excited that God has answered our prayers by providing a live kidney donor -- my baby brother and best friend, James.


I am putting together this fundraiser to raise money to help my family as they team together to support us during this challenging next few weeks and months.  While my insurance covers the cost of both mine and James' surgery and medical expenses, there are many of life's expenses that are not covered by insurance.  Both of my parents will be taking time off work (they are both self-employed and do not get any sort of vacation pay, etc.), my mom will be paying for her own accommodations and a place for James to stay and recover, and I know James will need a little help with his own bills and whatnot as he takes time to recover for the few weeks following surgery.

Here are some photos of our core support team over the next few weeks!

Michael and I have been very blessed and I have no intention of using any of this money for our own expenses.  My goal is only to provide a little financial support for my family members who are preparing to selflessly give so much to help support me, regardless of their own means and circumstances.  Every little bit helps and any funds raised in excess of what is needed will be donated to The National Kidney Foundation, an organization that provides amazing support and resources to people just like me.

To learn more about my journey, please check out my blog  where I have shared periodic updates on my health and how God has been working thorough all of this.  I have faith that this is all part of His plan and that He will provide abundantly throughout all of of this.  Even if you are not able to donate, we sincerely appreciate your prayers and support as my family comes together to get through the next few months.  Thank you for your consideration and support!
