Olumide Needs Your Help

Dear Friends and Family,

June 19, 2014

Hello friends,

We have found a donor who is willing to donate his kidney for Olumide to be given the Transplant so his life can return to normalcy.

Olumide is still on the waiting list for a deceased kidney but we would prefer to go with a Live kidney first. Kidney transplants last relatively long. Fifty percent of kidneys from a living donor still function after 16 to 20 years, and with organs from deceased donors, a transplanted kidney should last 8 to 10 years.

As you are all aware, he has been on that waiting list for over 3 years but we are not sure how much longer it will take. It has been a very challenging past 3 years for all of us involved especially Olumide and as you can imagine, he is tired of waiting and eager to resume his normal life.

We are going to need at least $10,000.00 before the Transplant will commence and once the funds are raised, we will schedule the Surgery with the Hospital and it can usually be done within a month.

The donor is a distant cousin on my Mom’s side and lives in Europe. The blood tests etc. that are directly related to the Transplant will be funded by Olumide’s Insurance.

My cousin is an older gentleman though he is in great health and that is why we are also keen to get things moving swiftly. My cousin is planning to travel down to the USA within the next 6 weeks.

So once again we really need your assistance, support and well wishes to get this Transplant scheduled. His 63rd birthday is October 21 as you know and this would be a brilliant birthday present if he could have had it done and have recovered by his birthday.

We are still fundraising at HelpHOPELive.org but individuals who wish to mail their cash or checks directly to us can do so. Our mailing address is 4303 Lake Lavon Court, Richmond, TX 77406. Please start fundraising or collections at your respective churches and tell friends. Every dime helps!
Thanks

Hello friends,

Olumide is still on the waiting list for a deceased kidney but that kidney would only last half the time as a Live kidney so we would prefer to go with a Live kidney first.

We appreciate and are grateful for the funds that were raised last year which were used to offset a quarter of his medical bills but we need your help again this year to raise more funds. We transferred to the Methodist Hospital and the Transplant will be done once the funds are raised.
