The family and friend of Abby

About 3 years ago Abby found out that her kidneys were beginning to fail. Almost two years ago she was told that she was going to need a kidney transplant and needed to find a donor. The average wait for someone on the national donor list is 3-5 years. Many people die before every finding a suitable donor. Fortunately, for Abby, I am a perfect match. My name is Marquita and I'm Abby sister.

Over the past 6 months Abby and I have been going through all the tests necessary to be cleared for kidney transplant surgery. I was just cleared this week to be Abby donor. I feel very blessed to be able to offer this gift to my sister. The timing of my clearance is very fortunate for us since just this past week Abby was vomiting nonstop and was admitted to the hospital for dehydration. While performing routine blood work they discovered that Abby kidneys were functioning at only 5%.

While the majority of the medical expenses will be covered by insurance, there will be many out of pocket expenses. I will be required to remain in the Tulsa Ok area for two weeks following surgery and will then need four more weeks of recovery at home. Abby will be in the Tulsa Ok area for much longer to monitor any possible signs of rejection.

We would be sincerely grateful for any assistance you are able to provide. We understand that times are tough for everyone right now, so any amount you are able to donate would be greatly appreciated.
