This is the May Kidney Transplant fund. The funds will be used for Brittany's medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

Brittany is a 22 year old single mother from Southaven, Mississippi. She has a beautiful 2 year old son named Trace who is the light of her life. Brittany needs to have a kidney transplant. Her kidneys are only functioning at 9%.
Her brother, Justin, has bravely offered to dontate one of his healthy kidneys and by the Grace of God he has been determined to be a match. The surgery will be performed in Nashville, TN at Vanderbilt University Hospital. Unfortunately Nashville is a 3 1/2 hour drive from Southaven so there have already been multiple trips made there for pre-surgery check ups. Justin and Brittany's mother, Sheila Bishop, will be taking care of both of her children during and after the surgery. She will have help from friends and other family members but Sheila will have to pay for most of the costs associated with the transplant that insurance will notcover. Since Justin will be out of work for 6-7 weeks after the surgery she will also have to help pay his monthly expenses. We need to raise money to help with all the expenses. Even with insurance, the costs will be staggering and Brittany will require medication for the rest of her life. Sheila will also have to take Brittany back to Vanderbilt for followup for at least a year following the transplant. We need your support. No amount is too small. Thank you for your donation, your support and your prayers.
