This is the Vivian Steiner Kidney Fundraiser! Please help us to assist with her medical/living expenses to alleviate the financial burden.

The friends and family of Vivian Steiner are uniting to raise money to help her battle with kidney disease. The funds raised will be used for her dialysis treatments and kidney transplant costs and related expenses not covered by Medicare.

Viv, age 42, is an incredible woman, wife, mother and friend. She and her husband, Duane, have been married for almost 13 years and together have a 15 year old son, Uly. Viv is a wonderful person and if more people had the compassion, love and sincerity that she has, this world would truly be a better place.

Viv’s story began in 1982 when she was diagnosed with Lupus. Not only Lupus but the steroids used to treat Lupus scarred her glomerular kidney cells that filter the blood. Testing a few years ago indicated a buildup of creatinine proteins in her urine but she was not truly diagnosed with kidney failure until late last year (2009).

There are very limited medication options due to the side effects so surgery is being scheduled to create the fistula for the dialysis access. Dialysis is expected to begin weeks after the fistula is created.

We would like to raise $25,000 for Viv and with your support, we know we can reach that goal. All contributions are deeply appreciated. Viv, Duane and Uly thank you for your support, prayers and generosity.
