Dear Family, Friends and Community,
Five and a half years ago my mom was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). She was on home dialysis four times every day. No days off! Her doctors at Indiana University Health told us that her only option was a life-saving kidney transplant.

My mom is doing great. We are almost at 2 years with her kidney transplant and the doctors are really happy with her continued good health. She still has to take her medications daily and for the rest of her life, but she has no complaints. Those medications and continued medical care can be quite pricey, so we are thankful to have a campaign set up with Help Hope Live to raise funds to help her pay for her medical expenses. Your donations mean more than you’ll ever know. Thank you all for your continued support.

My mother, Kim Selch, received a kidney donation! We are so grateful for this gift of life. She is home and doing well. It is hard to explain the feelings we have right now. Excitement for a new kidney but sadness for her donor’s family who is grieving the loss of a loved one. Excitement for what the future can now offer, but overwhelmed with what changes will come with it.

Kim has always had such a kind soul. She has always shown me kindness. I would love nothing more than to help her during this time in need!

Kim - Remembering all the good times we shared as young girls - a lot of laughter - we were crazy kids! Although I know your journey is tough, you inspire me with your strength. Take care.

Hi Kim, I know you are having a rough time, but you are one of the strongest people I know. I will be praying for and would love to get together. I miss our car pooling days! Love you lots!!!

Hi Kim, Personally, I think this whole thing sucks, big time! . I can't imagine what you are enduring! The daily routine has to be exhausting, but I have to remember, you are a Burleigh, and a Female. That makes for a Lethal combination of "Bad Ass". The will, humor, acceptance of what life throws at us are a natural part of you. Therefore, I know that you will find a way, each day, to lift the spirits of those around you, rather than the other way around. You've got it backwards babe, but then, that's a good thing, isn't it! My thought and prayers are in your corner and I know you will come out dancing and ready for a slug fest. Give 'em hell, Keep up the good fight and let God handle the big stuff! Love you
