Keli Thorn has had Polycystic Kidney Disease for about 10 years and it has now reached Stage 4 and she is now in need of a kidney!
Keli is a hard working mother of 4 kids ages ranging from 21, 20, 13 and 11. She works her behind off day in and day out to support her family and is an AVID supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness as she lost her mother and almost lost her sister to Breast Cancer. In June of 2019 her husband, Aaron Thorn suffered five strokes which left him with vision issues which lead him out of work. Now as Keli is the main supporter of the family her kidney’s have been through more stress which causes her to feel tired, sick and just not feeling great. As a hard working mother of 4 kids it is hard for Keli to get out and do things with her children and family when she is always feelings sick. She has been referred to a Donor Transplant Coordinator (Jessica Ratcliff, BSN, RN) and is now in the process of getting on the donor list. Her family is prepared for the long haul that the process is of finding a donor. But we need your help! We need help to find a donor and also spread the word that Keli is in need of a kidney!

We are excited to get the transplant completed but it is looking like it will be after the first of the year. The downside besides the wait is that we will have to pay out 5,000.00 deductible again after we just paid it for this year. We will have to start fund raising again soon
When you see the ad please share it so we can raise the funds.
If you can lease help us continue our journey

We received the following email this morning
I received the clearance letter from Dr. Dixon. We do not have forum this week as it would fall on Thanksgiving. I have already put Keli on the Agenda for the following Thursday on December 3rd. I will call you with an update right after that meeting to relay to you where everything stands. Best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving to you, Keli and your whole family. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or issues you may have.
