James Needs A Transplant And Your Help!

James Davis has been battling kidney disease and after being medically stable for many years, his kidney function is now down to 5% and he needs a kidney transplant. The KU transplant center requires all patients to show they have the money ready to pay for it. He has been on peritoneal dialysis for a year and we are very anxious for that transplant!

James' new kidney is waking up! It's 4 weeks later and his urine output has increased a lot! His labs keep showing he is able to go without dialysis so we are hoping his catheter in his chest will not be needed much longer.

He is traveling to KU Med weekly for now. He had to have a drain placed where he is retaining fluid over his new kidney and that will likely stay for a few weeks until it's all drained off. His staples, his dialysis catheter and his drain still need to be removed and he is unable to drive himself yet so family members are taking him on the 6 hour round trip!

We are using the donations to his HelpHopeLive fund to pay for mileage, tolls and a per diem and we are very grateful to have this fund to use for his needs since insurance doesn't cover this part of his transplant.

James got his kidney!! And today is the day for his fundraiser!

Save the credit card fees so your donation goes farther and James gets money to cover his trip to Kansas City. He's been there a week but will be another week in a hotel before he can go home.
