Kims Kidney Transplant

KIm has been on dialysis for 2 1/2 years. She is also on the kidney transplant list and has been for 2 1/2 years. Currently she has a foundation paying for her health insurance. She has recently been notified that once she receives a new kidney these payments will end.  The transplant organization requires her to have funds available to pay for this insurance or money for the medicine. The medicine will cost in the tens of thousands of dollars in order to keep the new kidney healthy. Without these medications, she will lose her transplanted kidney. Kim is to have her transplant in Tampa, which is 2 1/2 hours from home, she will be required to stay in Tampa for at least two months.  There she will have to visit her doctor several times a week. Kim has had numerous surgeries and hospitalizations due to complications from her kidney disease and dialysis.  She has also been recently diagnosed with a leaking heart valve.  Dialysis is a known cause for heart disease, heart failure and even death. The only way to combat this is through transplantation.  Please help Kim reach her goal so she can live a normal healthy life again.

Kim was diagnosed with kidney disease at the age of 25. What a shock to a young woman with two small children! She fought the disease for ten years before being told her kidneys failed to the point of needing dialysis and transplant.  Kim fully intends to give back after transplant! She will volunteer at dialysis centers and hospitals to help other kidney patients stay positive and get through the journey of being a kidney patient.  Please find it in your heart to help with even $5.00 if you can. God Bless you and thank you for reading!
