Family and friends of Jennifer Dennis are raising money for the nonprofit Help Hope Live to fund uninsured medical expenses associated with a kidney transplant.
She was diagnosed at age 21 with Polycystic kidney disease and is now looking for a living kidney donor at age 44. She’s been married to Harry since 2007 and has 2 kids and 2 step kids along with her 3 dachshunds. Besides her family, her two passions are being a social worker and volunteering in dog rescue.

For any questions, ANY regarding living kidney donation or the process I'll list the contact info below. They can answer questions about health concerns, financial questions, paired exchange program. This is a team dedicated solely for living donors. This is separate from my transplant team to allow privacy for the potential donors. I won't know about any call or testing unless you personally want to share with me. This is also the contact info to get started on testing to see if you might be that perfect match as well.

I heard back from the nurse and the schedule coordinator. I'll have my final tests of a pelvic CT scan, echocardiogram, EKG and chest xray on October 21st. They have decided for now to hold off on the heart cath with the contrast dye and I may not have to do this until I get closer to needing dialysis. The insurance has approved testing. If everything goes smoothly I should be on the transplant list mid November.
The application to start the medical fundraiser has been started and should be up this next week. I've invited everyone to a Facebook page set up by my son and his girlfriend to help spread my story. Please accept the invite and help us share! This is definitely a step in the right direction!
