My friend Judy Furness, a resident of Wolfeboro and a member of our community, is suffering from renal failure. In need of a kidney transplant, she is listed for transplant at Massachusetts General Hospital transplant program. Judy is lives with her beloved pet, Rezzie, having Pokey go to her forever home in March 2017. Both were rescued by her when they needed a home. She has always had a heart for those in need. Even in her weakened state, she seeks to serve those around her when she can. Now she is the one in need and we can all help meet this need. Transplants are life-saving but very expensive! While basic costs are covered by insurance there are many others, including transportation, and costs of a living donor.

Hi, friends – I spoke at the Alton Centennial Rotary Club a couple of weeks ago, about transplant and my search for a living donor and two people have applied! Of course, I’ve had quite a few screened out, so we have to wait and see. Still, it is exciting and keeps me going. I allow myself a little daydreaming about getting that call for surgery! A deceased donor could come all of a sudden if they found a perfect or near perfect match, but otherwise I can expect to wait 2 more years. Ugh. And they could suddenly take me off the list altogether if my health took a downturn. So, I try to rest in God’s love and goodness, “vast as an ocean” an old hymn says. Whichever way it comes out, it’s been quite a ride, just another adventure. Don’t forget to say your “Matchmaker” prayers for me (“Make me a match,” fromFiddler on the roof.)

Hi Judy, May God provide you with all you need! Ephesians 3:20. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us... My first grade teacher in Maynard MA (1965-1966) was Miss Furness. Could you be related to her? In Christ,
