Trini Wenninger and her family are confronting a challenge they cannot face alone. They need your help. Trini was diagnosed at the Cleveland Clinic with Pulmonary Veno-Occlusive Disease (PVOD), a rare condition that is destroying her lungs. The cause of PVOD is unknown and there is no cure. Eventually Trini will need to undergo a double-lung transplant in order to survive and to watch her daughter grow up.

Trini is scheduled for a kidney transplant soon as long as Covid-19 doesn’t delay or mess up proposed plans. Her transplanted lungs have been doing well but her kidneys have not. Her husband has been approved as a donor. They have several out-of-pocket expenses that insurance doesn’t cover so anything helps.

Trini is in Stage 4 Kidney Failure due to the transplant medications. This summer she had to endure some injections and infusions to help with her low Hemoglobin. Right now there’s not a whole lot we can do other than celebrate every blood test where her creatinine does not increase any more than it has.
