As most of you know Billie Sue had her transplant last May. You may not know that about seven months after her transplant she was diagnosed with kidney cancer. We are very hopeful that the surgery they have scheduled in April will freeze all of the cancer off her kidney. This past week her husband had a massive stroke. Life is just hitting them with one medical need after the other. Being a transplant patient will consist of a lifetime of medical expenses. She takes over 15 medications every day, has frequent bronchoscopies, and various doctors appointments. Right now her medical bills just for the transplant expenses are over $10,000 and now her cancer treatment bills and her husband's medical bills will probably at least double that amount.
We, her family, are asking if you feel moved to donate to her HelpHOPE Live campaign. As always all donations are tax deductible and go directly to HelpHOPELive and are placed in a regional restricted fund to help Billie Sue with her medically-related expenses. The funds are released as needed for those medical costs.
As always, if you are not able to donate, your prayers mean just as much. Thank you.
