WE NEED YOUR HELP
My daughter Laura was diagnosed with renal failure in November of 2009. Like any other 12-year old, she enjoys computer games, riding her scooter and talking on her cell phone. Laura is also a talented aspiring anime artist. Her teachers at Huffines Middle School describe her as a precious and courageous young lady with a positive outlook through these difficult circumstances.
Laura’s illness has progressed to end stage renal disease and she will soon need a kidney transplant. Her older sister, Jessica Bowery, will undergo testing to be the living donor.
Laura was evaluated at Children’s Medical Center Dallas and is a good candidate for transplant, but the surgical team determined that another surgery was medically necessary to correct a chronic colon issue. That surgery was successfully performed on March 25, 2011 and Laura’s tiny body is responding well. She is currently being treated with peritoneal dialysis on a cycler machine at home each night.
Transplants are extremely expensive and costs can be devastating. Even though the insurance company will cover the bulk of the procedure, there are co-payments for hospital stays, radiology, laboratory and very expensive medications needed for the rest of Laura’s life. To help defray these costs, a fundraising campaign has been established in Laura’s honor through the HelpHOPELive. HelpHOPELive is a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for over twenty-five years. To make a tax-deductible contribution:

It’s never easy to ask for assistance, but funding Laura’s transplant and medication cost is a difficult challenge and we need your help. Your financial gifts and prayers will be greatly appreciated.
