Family and friends of Nancy Crumley are raising money to pay for uninsured expenses associated with an intestinal transplantation.

Nancy was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 1984. That was a time when the disease was not very well known. There were no specialized medicines to treat her, so she ended up having 16 abdominal surgeries resulting in short gut syndrome. The past 3 years she has lived with constant pain and discomfort. Nancy’s condition makes it difficult for her to leave her house for any length of time. She cannot enjoy what most of us would consider a normal life. Nancy now needs a transplant of her small intestine which will result in her and her husband to relocate to Pittsburgh, PA for a year or more. They have to be close to the hospital in case of rejection or any other difficulties that may come up.

Nancy and I would like to thank all if those who donated. It is greatly appreciated as we will have so many expenses that our insurance doesn’t cover. We are so very lucky to have so many family and friends that care. It is hard to put into words what we feel. We are not looking forward to relocating and leaving our family and friends for a year or more, but if that’s what it takes to get Nancy well again we will just have to do it. We just want Nancy to be able to live a relatively normal life again. To be able to eat like normal people do and to be able to sleep through the night and not having to get up every two hours. It has been two years since she has been able to eat a good meal. So thanks again for all of your help and your supportive words.
