A KIDNEY 4 JUDY!

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.

Another possible kidney donor just came forward – but so many have fallen away. They have a – rightfully – rigid screening process – and some people self screen out. Anyway – it always blows me away when someone offers. First I have to see if I am still eligible with MGH. Tufts has turned me down. Getting too old. It is so ironic that you have to wait endless years and then just when you get to the top of the list they tell you you are too old or other parts of you start to deteriorate. Such is life. Living with hope and acceptance at the same time. Please, please encourage others to sign up as organ donors. It’s not just me – there are so many people waiting – not just for kidneys – all ages of people.
