This is the Lester McKinney Kidney Fund. The funds will be used for Lester's medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

While living in Oklahoma, Lester, age 30, found out on Feb. 21, 2012 that his transplanted kidney that he received from me (his Mom) in 2005 had shut down. After two hospitalizations, and almost three months off work, he has returned to work, and is on peritoneal dialysis, which he does nightly at home. He is in the process of being evaluated up for a second transplant, which he has chosen to have done at Baptist Medical in OKC where his doctor has an affilitation with the hospital in which he was taken for the original diagnosis.

Lester and his wife, Paige, have two young girls Emmarie and Kyleigh. Now that things have settled down, Paige and the girls have returned home to Arkansas so that Paige can return to the work force and Emmarie can start Kindergarten. Please keep their family in your prayers during this difficult time. Pray for strength and peace while the family is separated, and pray that Lester's obligations in OK will be met quickly so that this family can be reunited. If you have any questions, or suggestions or just need to contact a representative for the family please call Paige McKinney (Lester's Wife) at 479-453-6270 or e-mail at paige.mckinney@hotmail.com

If you wish to send a donation by mail, please send checks to attention: Lester McKinney 109 Jill Way Clinton, OK 73601

This is the Lester McKinney Kidney Fund. The funds will be used for Lester's medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance from his prior hospitalizations. It will also be used to help defray the expenses the family incurs during the period of time that Lester will be off work following a transplant.
