Help Janice Get a Kidney Transplant

Janice Smith, my mom, has known for many years that she would eventually need a kidney transplant. Prior to my grandfather’s death she learned that she had inherited his polycystic kidney disease. In 1980 Janice and her four siblings were tested and she was the only one that inherited the disease. She has worked very hard to take care of her overall health to prolong her kidney function. Now, her doctors at Legacy Hospital in Portland have told her that she needs a kidney transplant in order to survive.

God is so good! He has provided our every need! Karen’s fundraising event yesterday had a great turnout and was very successful.

We have also received grant funding from the National Living Donor Assistance Center that will cover the majority of Karen’s travel, food and lodging while in Portland.

This takes a great deal of stress off of our shoulders and allows us to relax and recover from surgery. Thank you so much for your help! We appreciate it more than you know!

We are less than 4 weeks away from transplant surgery! Our fundraiser takes place in Jefferson WI next Sunday, October 2 from 3-5pm at the Masonic Lodge.
We have a TON of great baskets and prizes to raffle off, please come out, enjoy some wine and ice cream and win some prizes!
I can’t thank my friends enough for their continued support and generosity.

Good luck to you both! I was a living donor for my sister, she received a kidney two years ago, my brother gave her one 12 years before that - it's a wonderful gift! If someone can please e-mail me, we would donate a print to this raffle: Jenny Shipman - [email protected]
