Tina Ili Kidney Transplant Fund. Funds raised will be used for Tina's medical costs & related expenses not covered by insurance.

Family and Friends of Tina Bloxham Ili are working together to raise funds to pay medial and related costs, not covered by insurance for a life saving kidney and pancreas transplant. Tina has been an incredibly strong woman while struggling the last 22 years with Type 1 Diabeties along with several permnent diabetic complacations but now at the age of 41 her kidneys are shutting down quickly Tina has been on the inactive waiting list for transplant since 2007 at UCSF but now once UCSF receives her blood samples( 7-17-12)) for a final cross match she will be moved to the top 4 on the active list for O type blood. She has 5 children (ranging in age from 12-26yrs) , 2 of which are still living at home. She had been blind in both eyes for over 2 years and had to stop working. Tina regained vision in her right eye and went right back to work in September of 2007. Earlier this year she had her left eye removed due to severe pain. She still has a full time job, as she needs to help take care of the household expenses. It has been getting incredbily difficult to remain at work while being so sick. Thankfully Tina has had GREAT support of family and friends thru out the years. Now we are all rallying around in support of Tina's journey. Thank you!!!!!!! Donations can also be sent via check to 2366 17th st Eureka, CA 95501 payable to Kidney Fund c/o Tina Ili. Also deposited at Coast Central #166838-550 KIDNEY FUND any question email
