This is the Andre Cory Jones Kidney Transplant & Recovery Fund. The funds will be used for Cory's medical costs and related expenses.

Since December 28th Cory has endured a handful of surgeries, big and small, not to mention, hundreds of doctor's appointments. He has a long road ahead, a 6 figure kidney transplant which leaves him out of work for about a month, life long medications (an average of 20) and doctor's visits. Thankfully he has a stable job with incredible benefits that pay for 90% of the surgery. That still leaves him well over $30,000 that has to be taken into consideration. Looking into the big picture, we want to start a family and can't even begin to think of that if this financial burden is weighing over our heads.

He is my heart. He did not deserve what he has endured but he definitely deserves support. Whether it be a hot meal, or a back rub, or giving some form of donation so that the weight can hopefully help to be lifted after such a serious surgery.

I never thought I would begin a fundraiser for him until I saw the hundreds of thousands of other families that are having to handle such bills for the same surgery. I ask of all that know him or I, to consider the possibility. Whether it be 1$ or 100$ it makes a difference in the recovery process not just physically but mentally and emotionally. This is called Give Forward, if ever you felt that you wanted to help but couldn't find the way, here it is. I promise you that we will respond once Cory has recovered by donating our time and efforts to the Kidney Disease Foundation as well as participating in fundraisers around our community.
