Flora Needs Your Help
Family, friends, and co-workers of Flora Sumrall are raising money through the nonprofit Help Hope Live to fund uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation. Flora is scheduled for a kidney transplant the month of December 2018 and will have several preparation appointments leading up to this life-changing experience. Flora is working with the medical team at the University of Alabama (UAB) in Birmingham, AL. The travel between her home of Quitman and Birmingham alone is just one of many aspects where we can team up to support Flora’s journey.

1/10/19: My surgery was postponed because one of the donors in the circle (not mine) had to drop out for medical reasons. We cannot continue with the surgeries until that donor is replaced. At this point, they have not found another one. I am currently “on call” waiting for them to find a replacement. As soon as they call me, I will have to start the procedure to prep for the surgery.

1/4/19: I was placed on hold just before December 7 (my surgery date) because one of the other donors (there are 4 donors and 4 recipients) had some medical problems that could not be resolved. That donor has to be replaced; therefore, the rest of us are on call. I am just at a stand still right now until I hear from the unit. This could be at any time. This is a very upsetting time, but there is nothing that we can do but wait and pray that they call soon.
