kidney transplant expenses

$3,306 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 41 people in 53 months

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.

My campaign has been refocused because I have developed multiple myeloma, a form of cancer that attacks the nervous system. The medication is expensive, the drug companies help but it’s still high out of pocket expense.
