I am at the top of the KIDNEY TRANSPLANT LIST as of this past week (Friday, October 4, 2019. I could be called in the next week or so. Please keep us in your prayers upon my trip to the UNC Women's Hospital in Chapel Hill.

This will be my first major surgery other than getting my gall bladder out in the last year. It is a scary process and I am overwhelmed by all of the emotions that I am feeling. Thank you for all of your help in fundraising these past 6 years. Wow! The time has sure flown by so fast.

Please don't let this stop you from donating to a worthy cause. This fundraising process is one way for me to pay for my medicines and many other medical issues.

Good morning, everyone. It has been a while since I have done an update for all of my followers and donators. So far, I am doing well.

My health is good and my dialysis treatments are going great. I have had a very rough year or so dealing with other issues. All in all, though, my health is the same. I am still on the KIDNEY TRANSPLANT LIST and trying to stay positive.

I have not been able to do as much fundraising as I would have liked this past year and I hope to have a fundraiser sometime in the near future.
