Family and friends of Nikki Harris are uniting to raise money to help save her life. Please show your support!

Nikki has been hospitalized for months in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma battling a lung disease (Sarcoidosis) She was diagnosed to have the disease in 2004; yet it has really taken a toll on her in the last two years. Since 2004 Nikki has been in and out of the hospital because of collapsed lungs. She has been prescribed Prednesone, a steroid, which helps slow down the sarcoidosis. However, side effects and infections hinder the healing process. She is currently confined to a hospital room with chest tubes.

Ultimately, she needs a lung transplant. Nikki can not leave the hospital and will ultimately be forced into hospice. Her insurance will only cover a certain percentage of her transplant and after-care costs; therefore, she is responsible for covering the rest! Her doctor and hospital bills, medications, and the cost of the transplant are mounting.

Nikki most likely will have to leave the state in order to have the transplant. If this happens, she will have to find somewhere to stay for about 3 to 4 months after surgery. This means she will have to bare the cost of a place to stay and transportation to and from doctors’ visits, etc.

Nikki has been a prominent member of the OKC community, owning her own print shop before having to sell it due to her illness. She has always been a symbol of strength and leadership, always putting others before herself.

Nikki has two daughters, a granddaughter and a host of family and friends who love and need her here. So, I am asking for your help in behalf of her to please donate and maybe we can give her the hope she needs and life she deserves and save her. You can make a difference! Thank you and your prayers.
