Sharon Desperately Needs Your Help
Sharon is a wife, mother of 4, and grandmother of 7, ranging from ages 9 to newborn. She has worked most of her life, primarily as a relay operator for the deaf and hard of hearing. Sharon and her husband, a Veteran, now operate a small business to supplement their income. They sell primarily on military bases, and also at area craft shows. But being on dialysis severely limits how much she is able to travel to different shows, thus the need for a transplant, versus dialysis for the rest of her life.

I am in near completion of all the testing needed for kidney dialysis. At this time, everything is coming back normal, giving me the go ahead for kidney transplant. The only thing stopping me from being placed on a list is the financial aspects attached to kidney transplant. My medications alone will cost approximately $1500 per month until I reach 65, which would be 5 years. In addition, there is the hospital bill which would be approximately $1500, and then follow up visits following the surgery. My focus now is raising the funds that will be needed for kidney transplant, so I can move forward with this.
I am still experiencing occasional problems with dialysis; veins infiltrating, etc. Obtaining a kidney transplant would mean no more dialysis (if I receive a living donor), and more time to spend with my 4 children and 7 grandchildren. Please donate to my cause, or if you can help out with any fundraising efforts please contact me or Help Hope Live. Thank you in advance and God bless each of you reading this.

Dialysis is not going well. Have been having trouble accessing the vein for treatment. Now that my catheter is gone, this makes a transplant more of a necessity. Today I could not receive treatment at all because the vein blew. Either dialysis or transplant is necessary for my survival. Please help with donations, or help me in setting up some fundraisers to raise the money needed for transplant. I am not ready to meet my maker just yet.
