This is the Jill Davis Kidney Transplant Fund. All money to be used to cover medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

I am raising money to help my sister while she treats her kidney failure. Jill was diagnosed in 2006 with stage 4 renal failure. Her doctors now consider her in end stage renal disease. She has been doing dialysis since June of 2010. Dialysis has been a trying and taxing time for Jill, both emotionally as well as financially. She has had to lessen the hours she spends at her job, which has resulted in a decrease in pay and financial stress to her family. The financial stresses are sure to increase during and after transplant. I am trying to raise enough for Jill and her family to cover medications her insurance does not, as well as transportation to and from the hospital. Jill's only hope for recovery and a healthy life is by receiving a kidney transplant. I will be heading to Houston, TX the second week of March to see if I will be a suitable donor. Although I feel healthy, there are many factors that could determine I am not the right person for donation. Jill is battling every day for her life and I am trying to lesson that battle by decreasing the mounting financial stresses. We thank you for your donations, support and most importantly your prayers.

God Bless You,
The family of Jill Davis
