Keep Joy Alive!
Joy: a feeling of great hope and happiness. In October of 2017, I was diagnosed with stage four kidney failure. I am now waiting for a kidney transplant at UAB in Birmingham. Even so, I know there is great joy in the Lord! I am trusting Him; but need your help.

2019 was a challenging year but God is faithful! I received my kidney in January and 3 months later UAB physicians discovered that my aortic valve had severe stenosis. I had to undergo open heart surgery and am finally getting great reports. After 2 plus years of medical bills, new costs for kidney/heart medications, I was laid off in a reduction in force this January 2020. I have earnestly tried to keep up with the costs of continued specialist appointments, labs, medication costs and the cost of health insurance while diligently looking for new employment. Please pray for me and if you are able to donate something I would be very grateful.

January 2020 – I was just laid off from my full time job. It is a new benefits year and even on COBRA my deductible starts over along with all my usual medical expenses. The anti rejection medications for my kidney are very expensive and will not continue to be covered by Medicare D for an extended time. I am not old enough to qualify for social security. Anything you can give will be a huge help in continuing my care. I continue to have many doctor appointments and still travel to Birmingham to the UAB hospital for my continued care. I am eagerly seeking a new position but will need temporary assistance until I receive that new position! I appreciate your help!
