Carol Needs Your Help!
My wife, Carol Anderson, is just 57 years old and needs a lifesaving kidney transplant to survive. She suffers from a rare genetic disorder called Alport syndrome. This illness is characterized by progressive kidney disease and abnormalities of the ears and eyes. Because of its heredity nature, family members have been eliminated as potential kidney donors. Though this is the case, Carol is holding out hope she may still find a living donor match. Currently, she is going through an extensive evaluation at UNC where we anticipate she will be placed on the active kidney transplant waiting list.

I am now on the transplant list as of 03/24/2017. I also may have a donor, we will know for sure next month. We are hoping to have a BBQ Fundraiser soon. I have had several churches in my area to have fundraisers for me, so grateful for all the support from my family and community. I would like to mention my cousin Joyce Short and her husband Gayle, she is like a sister to me. They have been responsible for organizing and raising funds on my behalf. The breakfast, lunch, and spaghetti dinner that was at a several churches raise $1788.25.

I’m looking forward to 2017 pray that I raise the funds needed for my transplant and medication. I will be at UNC on the 23rd for more testing and will be going back in February. I hope that everything will go well and I get a transplant soon.
