My life was saved nearly four years ago from my generous friend donating her kidney to me. Cathleen saved my life and I could never thank her enough for what she and her family were wiling to do to save me.
Though I still struggle with chronic and episodic pain from procedures, excisional biopsies and cancer surgeries, I would never give up living and am thankful every day!
In light of my challenges, I continue to cherish every good day and am so thankful to be here.

Thank you very much to my recent donors. I apologize for not writing more and keeping you all up to date. I hope to do better. T
This year, 2019 has brought many unexpected challenges. The best news is that my renal transplant is functioning very well, offering me the best chance of success. My skin cancer has been very painful and greatly impacts my quality of life. I pray for any relief and a treatment to lessen my cancer burden.
I was feeling well and living a good life. I had been working as a Physician Assistant for three years at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City after graduating from Cornell Medical College PA program in Dec 1994.
I was diagnosed with my first squamous cell skin cancer on my right lower leg in March 1997. Fourteen months (June1998) after my first squamous cell skin cancer was excised, I had hundreds of skin cancers on sun-exposed areas of my skin. A year and a half after my first skin cancer appeared, my cancer was categorized as catastrophic. Soon after my renal transplant and Moh’s surgical dermatologists discussed my case and other options due to the high chance that my skin cancer may metastasize, ending my life.

Thank you to all my supporters! It means so much to me. Helping me with some of my medical costs offers me the ability to pay for other necessities in life. Not having a car, I’ve been using Uber and NYC Taxi’s to get to and from wound care and skin cancer appointments downtown. I always require a car following my skin cancer surgeries so I can make it home before the lidocaine wears off.
Having monetary assistance with some of these important costs offers me the chance to save for other immediate necessities such as a couch, a replacement car and a new laptop computer.
Thanks very much to all my supporters. You support means the world to me.
