My name is Jerri Lewis (Jeannie). I was born with a condition called Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) and unless I have a transplant, I will not survive.

My kidneys have started to shut down. I am now on dialysis 5 days a week. The life expectancy of a dialysis patient is 5 to 10 years. I have been offered a transplant through Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, Washington. There are out-of-pocket expenses that come with an organ transplant that my insurance will not cover. I am responsible for nearly $10K of these that are related to transplantation, housing and post transplant care. The hospital will not move forward until I can show that I’ve fundraised for the money needed. I will be required to stay in Seattle for 6 weeks after my transplant surgery which is a requirement to make sure that I don’t reject the organ and I can begin the healing process.
