My father needs a life-saving kidney transplant! Please help us raise money to cover the cost of the surgery not covered by insurance.

My father, Gordon Williams, is scheduled for a kidney transplant on June, 14, 2012. His wife Germaine will be giving him one of her kidneys. We are very fortunate that Germaine is a match to give my father one of her kidneys. There was a period of time where doctors felt that Germaine's kidney would actually attack my father's body and that my father would have to join the national registry and wait again for a kidney. Thankfully, the doctors are reassured that the transplant of her kidney to my father willl be successful and just gave the ok and scheduled the surgery. The only hurdle to cross now is gathering the money to pay for the surgery. There is an $8000 gap that insurance will not cover. My father and Germaine will also both be out of work for an extended period of time recovering from their surgeries. We are asking that if you can please donate any amount possible to this life-saving surgery for my father. No amount is too small. If you cannot contribute financially please pray that we raise enough money to cover the surgery and that my father and Germaine's surgeries and recoveries are successful.

Thank you,
