Julie Needs Your Help
Julie is a Greenwood resident who has been battling kidney disease for several years. In May 2017, the doctors placed her on the list for a kidney transplant. She is no longer working full time, due to the demands of working full time and raising two kids while coping with kidney disease. Although she has insurance, the cost of a kidney transplant is overwhelming, so she needs the help of her community to offset these costs.

Kidney update for those interested: Function is holding steady right now (GFR 12, Creatinine a little lower than 2 months ago). Fistula is working well and should be ready to go when I am ready for dialysis. Doctor said he is just waiting for me to tell him when I start feeling really sick so he can get me started. I’ll continue seeing him every 2 months for now. He started me on some new meds due to a couple of my labs being out of whack. Hoping to finish up physical therapy on my arm in the next week or two, but will continue exercises at home until I get my full strength back. My arm is moving much better now, and the ortho surgeon said I should have most of my strength back by August. Olivia has been a big help with doing the heavy (and some not-so-heavy) lifting around here. I’ll miss her the two weeks she’ll be gone this summer, and I might have to call others to help. Thanks to all who helped after surgery, and all those who have been working on fundraising. I appreciate you all! Keep praying for that kidney. I know God has a plan for me.
