Kidney transplant and misc expenses

$10,666 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 130 people in 18 months
My name is Meg.  I've been on dialysis since 2012.  I'm also homeless and living out of my car.  Disability is my only source of income.  My treatments are 3 x a week for four hours at DaVita.  It can leave me tired and exhausted on dialysis days.  I have my good and bad days.  It would be difficult to work a full-time job due to my schedule and how well I feel which depends day to day.   I started this GoFund me campaign to help for expenses relating to transplant surgery and a used car to help me go to my various doctor's visits.  I've been told that transplant medication is costly and may not be 100% covered by insurance.  My car is quite old and may not last much longer.  I'm on a transplant list and in Los Angeles County the wait can be as long as ten years.  To say I'm on borrowed time is an understatement.  Eventually I'd like to move into a permanent apartment and live an independent life.  Any amount would help my situation.  Thank you in advance.

This is an update. Thank you for the general public for your generosity and kindness. It is very much appreciated. My dialysis treatments are going well and in a few years will be getting a kidney. The good news is that I now secured housing. Due to ongoing expenses such as auto maintenance bills, etc I will need financial help since I'm on a fixed income. Thank you in advance.
