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.

Big day today at the Alton Centennial Rotary Home etcetera Show. I had a volunteer from the New England Donor Services for most of the day, and then a friend from my charismatic prayer group. It was exhilarating talking to all those people, and learning about them and their exhibits also. Everything including a high school robotics group. Also an animal rescue farm in Chichester with 80 horses! I got my hands washed with lavender. Now to bed.

Just to keep you up n my latest doings: I have a Donate Life table set for the Alton Centennial Rotary Home, Garden, and Recreation Show on April 21st 9 to 3. It will be a long day for me, so could use a couple of more volunteers to pass out literature about transplant and my bio and “mug shot.”
Sue Bolton Is going to do a table at the Red Cross blood drive at First Congregational Church of Ossipee on April 30th while a simultaneous one is gong on in Alton at St Katharine Drexel Church. I can get to that one on my way home from dialysis and sit there for a couple of hours. It helps for people to meet me, I think, though I am so whacked out after dialysis. Sue and I sat outside a local market a Saturday ago and got 3 more possible living donors for me! It staggers my mind to think someone would do such a thing for another, but I’m desperate enough to just take it and say my feeble thanks. they all seem to disappear into a black hole! I am thinking about getting dual listed for transplant in another region of the country, but don’t know how to make that work. First prayer. Then I would really need to build up my fund! Thanks to all my donors. LOVE, Judy

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,

Love the page and the picture on it, Judy. Thanks for letting me know about it. I'm praying for a donor to be found soon. Love, Jan
