Jeanie Needs Your Help
Jeanie Buchanan desperately needs your help. At the young age of 30, Jeanie was diagnosed with a severe case of polycystic kidney disease, which eventually caused her kidneys to fail. She has been dependent on dialysis for almost five years, and receives her treatment three days a week, over four hours each day. A lifesaving kidney transplant is Jeanie’s only hope for survival, and her only chance to resume the life she once knew.

August 30, 2015. I cannot begin to express my thanks and gratefulness for an absolutely WONDERFUL auction/bowling fundraiser Saturday, August 29, 2015. So successful!!! Thank you to the 70 people that showed up. It is absolutely amazing to me to realize that all 70 people were my family or friends. MINE. And the more I looked at them the more I realized that the whole room full of happy bowlers were my family. It is so awesome!
Thank you to dear friends who supported me and encouraged me. I had perfect strangers come to me and tell ME thanks for having the fundraiser. (And they were sent to me by a friend who couldn’t make it, thank you Michelle.) Thank you to Sandy Thiese and Alan and their family for giving me much needed help. Thank you, my Mechanic Man (my significant other and I have promised never to reveal his true identity), for spending endless hours calling friends and for those friends joining in to help me. Thank you to Lynn at Valley Bowl in Spokane for opening the alley for all my friends and for jumping in there and handling the auction items and for the additional auction item that went for $100. Lynn is fantastic and my life saver! Thank you all. I am very, very blessed. As one friend, Marty said, “the people here are here because they care about YOU.” Very humbling!
Both my brothers and their wives were with me including ALL of our eight grandchildren which included FIVE that turn three years old within this four-week period of time. All the kids were super fun to watch.
The auction was great and really fun and helped immensely by the owner of Spokane Valley Bowl with her vivacious personality. Thank you so much Lynn.
