Dear Friends and Family,
Many of you know my loving wife, Stacey McQuaig Kaylor. Originally from Atlanta, Stacey moved to Jonesborough, Tennessee six years ago. She is the mother to our son Levi and had been working as a wedding photographer for 20 years. Unfortunately, due to her deteriorating health, Stacey is no longer able to work or do many of the things she has always been able to do. Stacey has been courageously battling end stage renal disease for this past year. Stacey’s doctors at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta have told us that her only real shot at a long and healthy life is to receive a life-saving kidney transplant as soon as possible.
However, due to the extraordinary expense of transplantation, as well as Stacey’s inability to work, funding this life-saving operation is a monumental task. Despite having health insurance, many of her medical needs are not covered and must be paid out-of-pocket. Some of these expenses are very high deductibles, co-pays and the immunosuppressant medications that Stacey will need for the rest of her life. This presents a challenge that we cannot meet alone and your help is desperately needed
To help offset some of these uninsured costs, a fundraising campaign in Stacey’s honor has been established with HelpHOPELive (formerly NTAF), a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for nearly 30 years. All contributions are tax deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the South-Atlantic Kidney Transplant Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for transplant-related expenses only. You can help make a difference in Stacey’s life. Please consider making a contribution.Together we can make a difference by assisting Stacey during this difficult time. Thank you in advance for your generosity, support and prayers.
