Dudley Needs Our Help

Dudley Edmondson, a friend to so many people, has kidney failure and is now in need of a kidney transplant. About ten years ago Dudley was diagnosed with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), a debilitating disease that attacks the kidneys. Transplants are life saving but very expensive and Dudley needs help from his family, friends and community to make it happen.

Well as some of you may know I’ve had my surgery, and doing well in my recovery. For the first time in years I feel almost normal if there is such a thing. Because I was pretty healthy to start and got a living kidney donation from a dear friend, my recovery has been exceptional.

Just the same it has not been easy. Numerous follow up appointments,testing, taking hundreds (100’s) of pills of prescription medications a month are my new normal.

I know I still have a ways to go and 2017 will be the real test for our medical finances. With the operation and testing we maxed out our medical and have seen no medical bills for months now.

2017 we will be relying heavily on the help hope live funds, medicare and our insurance plan because those bills will be coming again. Because of your generosity I feel pretty good about the coming years and just want to thank you for coming to our aid in our time of need

Happy New Year

Maybe by now many of you know I had a successful Kidney Transplant on March 3rd 2016. I could not have done it without your support and generous donations. I am recovering well at a transplant house near Mayo Clinic in Rochester Mn. I hope to be home soon and return to live with my new kidney, which has given me a new lease on life.

Thank you Everyone

Dudley, I met you at The Many Faces of Conservation held at the Black Swamp Bird observatory in the Toledo Metroparks, September 26. 2009. I was just beginning many phases of outdoor adventures at that time, and I continue to do so these subsequent years. You encouraged me at that time, and now I want to encourage you at this stage with a donation and prayers for you and Nancy as you take this journey for better health. Love and Prayers.
