Kelli is a happily married mom of two great teenagers, a loving wife, valued daughter and loyal friend.

She is in Stage 5 Renal Failure. Having been on the waiting for a new kidney for 5 years now, it has been determined that only a Living Kidney Donor will save her life.

In addition to needing raise the $20,000 needed to cover all of the non-medical expenses associated with being transplanted, she is also in need of people to volunteer to be tested to donate a living kidney.

You do not have to wait until you are gone to donate a kidney! You can have a simple operation to remove one healthy kidney which will then be transplanted in Kelli. And she will live!

More information on being a Living Kidney Donor can be found here:

Our hope is to complete this fundraiser by raising the $20,000 needed, so that we will not have to concerned about having to do any fundraising in the future, and can focus on getting Kelli as healthy as possible for her surgery.

Some will donate less, some more, but every penny helps.

In talking with my doctor, he strongly believes that Sarah is still a strong and viable candidate ( I shared the lame reason that the social worker at Cedars Sinai had said no to her as a candidate, and he was appalled they would turn someone away like that).

He has worked with both UC Davis and Stanford and shot off emails to the head of each transplant department (friends and former Air Force colleagues) to see if they thought Sarah would be viable candidate for me in their respective programs. Once we get their answers (I see him March 30), and if they want us, we will transfer everything to them and kick start this process.

So, you can see why we really need to get this thing done!

Thank you so much for all your prayer and support these many years. I truly appreciate it as does my family
