Help Me Get A New Kidney!

My name is Melissa, and I am in need of a life-saving kidney transplant. At age 16 I was diagnosed with Rapidly Progressive Glomerulonephritis and within two weeks of this diagnosis, on my 17th birthday, I started hemodialysis, a form of treatment for end-stage renal disease. Despite the statistics and the odds against me, I survived nine years of this grueling treatment while waiting on the active kidney transplant waiting list until I received the transplant – my gift of life! My gift has given me nearly 10 years of freedom from the machine that kept me alive, but due to a rejection episode I now find myself in need of another transplant.

Well yard sale Day 1 was a fail. Made $8 but then it decided to rain overnight which blew my canopy away and the tarps I had covering the sale items leaving some of them damaged and the canopy I had borrowed was destroyed and I will have to replace that. It is still raining so I have not been able to open up for Day 2 which means today may also be a bust. I am super frustrated that with everything else I have going on this one thing couldn’t just go smoothly. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. 🙁
