Family and friends are uniting to raise money to help and show support as she goes through these trying times awaiting a kidney transplant.

Here's my story.....on January 24th I entered the emerge unable to breath. Little did I know that my kidneys had failed and my heart was beginning to fail also. I was faced with the decision of dialysis or die. I chose dialysis. I wasn't aware that it would leave me so weak and susceptible to so many things. I spent 3 weeks in the hospital since I developed pneumonia. The antibiotic they treated me with also caused an allergic reaction. I lost all my hair except facial, all body odors and my appetite. Oh and I was bright red with what felt like a sunburn all over. Back to the hospital I went, this time for sever back pain and when I say severe I mean three times worse than child birth. I then developed a staff infection from my cathedar so back in the hospital again. During all this I was alleviated of my job duties and left with no money. Soley depending on my mom and trying to be a good mom to my daughter. The financial burden is great and its only just begun as I await to be evaluated in Gainesville for my transplant. There are also the day to day cost of gas to get me to doctors appointments, medical bills, medicine and much much more. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
