The family of Latoya McGruder is attempting to raise funds for a kidney transplant and related expenses not covered by insurance. Latoya has battled Lupus Nephritis since her diagnosis in her mid-twenties. The Lupus began attacking her kidneys, causing her to lose significant kidney function. Latoya was placed on dialysis ten years ago. Since then she has faced tremendous health battles and financial hardships . She is in dire need of a kidney transplant but just needing a kidney does not get you on the transplant list. You must demonstrate that you can pay for the medications needed after surgery. She'll need $10, 000 to be placed on a transplant list through the Georgia Kidney Foundation. She is a mother of four, who has no additional income to spare. Latoya is a college graduate who was always independent and strong willed. She is now unable to work and she and her family struggle just to maintain the basics. Her kidneys have almost completely failed and soon even dialysis won't be enough to keep her alive. I cannot begin to imagine a world without her. She is one of the most loving, caring, generous, and positive people I know. Her son is about to start his sophomore year in college. One daughter has just begun her first year of high school. While her youngest is still in middle school. Our goal is to make sure she's here for soccer games, track meets, and graduations.
