Trae Needs a Kidney

I am Shelia, Trae Putnam's mom and we live in the foothills of North Carolina.

Trae is living with a rare blood disease that has put him into total renal failure. He has been living on dialysis for the last three years, and is currently on a waiting list for a kidney transplant. Trae hasn't been able to work since starting dialysis. 

Money raised will help with current and future medical expenses for Trae, and any costs associated with donation for the donor.  Any funds over and above what Trae needs, will be donated to The National Kidney Foundation and The Kidney Project. 

Thank you for your generous donation!

Just wanted everyone to know that Trae received a kidney on October 16th @ Baptist Hospital. Initially he was doing well but we had to be admitted again for more tests and hopefully he will be discharged tomorrow. We want to thank everyone for their donations, prayers and continued support. As you can imagine the bills are piling up rapidly. We will be on Fox News and Friends again soon if things continue to go well. We send our love to all and God bless
