Nan Drake, my mother, is a 55-year-old woman who is very ill. She has always been one of the strongest and kindest women I know. She is always there to help everyone no matter how bad she is feeling. She has such a positive attitude and always has smile on her face no matter what adversity she is facing.
Now she needs our help. Her only hope after years of struggling with Polycystic Kidney Disease is a transplant. The cost of a transplant is completely overwhelming. She is always the first person to help others, but has never been the type to ask anyone to help her. I hope the kindness she has shown so many people throughout her life comes back to her now that she is the one who needs help.

I want to thank the 5 people who came forward to offer to be tested to donate a kidney.3 can no longer donate due to health related issues.1 is not a match, but is checking with the National Kidney Registry.If he matches someone nationwide and their donor matches me then we can potentially swap donors.1 person will be starting testing soon.I am forever grateful for those who have come forward!
