Please help me raise money to help keep my Mommy around longer. She needs a Kidney Transplant and Pancreas due to her struggle with her Diabetes and I want to help raise funds so she can get this surgery done ASAP. Thank you! XOXO

 Ever since I was 7 years old I can remember my Mother having health problems and it all started with Type 1 Diabetes. Since 1987 she has struggled endlessly with health problems and bad luck. When I was 9 years old she suddenly became so ill even the Doctors couldn't pin point what was going on--she was dragged to many different clinics and had to leave my Father to raise  us 4 daughters and my brother who was 3 or 4 at the time for about a year to help find out what was wrong. Still to this day we don't know what caused her to be so sick.

It seem like one thing after another for my Mother--I received a call one day that she was hit by a car and it shattered her leg. The doctors wanted to amputate it but with faith and prayers the doctors were able to save it. During all these years too-she has had many problems with her eyesight--another problem that comes with Diabetes along with the function of her kidneys. Just over a year ago my poor Mother slipped on the ice and broke her femur and they told her without starting dialysis she would not survive during surgery--so they would not perform surgery on her leg unless she started dialysis.

So with all this being said--she never had insurance and most dialysis patients have 2 to 6 years to survive. This scares me to think she has been on it well over a year now--hence why I am trying to raise money to help fund a kidney transplant and now a Pancreas too!

I can't imagine my Mommy leaving earth and me anytime soon! Please--if you can find it in your heart to help me--I know you will have blessings come to you for helping my Mom.
