Help Allie Get Her New Kidney!
My name is Alison Jones, most people call me Allie. I am the mother of Alerique Dariso and we live in Gwynn Oak, Maryland. I’ve been unwell living with polycystic kidney disease or PKD and my doctors at Georgetown University Medical Center tell me my only option is a lifesaving kidney transplant. That is why I’m reaching out to my family, friends and community for your support.
After putting myself through school, I worked while raising my family until two years ago when I was fired. Thankfully, I was able to go on disability but needed to focus on something positive. I started a foundation to increase awareness about kidney disease and the importance of kidney function testing because when I was just 17, I was diagnosed with PKD, a renal disease that decreases kidney function. Now my kidneys have started to fail.
Miraculously, through Facebook, a selfless person living in Chicago offered to be my living donor and was found to be a match! However, funding this life-saving procedure is a monumental task, a challenge I cannot face alone, even with insurance. There will be many costs associated with the transplant such as co-pays, anti-rejection medications I will need to take for the rest of my life, travel and donor expenses while we are in recovery.
To help with the financial burden of my uninsured expenses, a fundraising campaign in my honor has been established with HelpHOPELive, a trusted nonprofit organization that has been providing community-based fundraising guidance for patients and their families for more than 30 years. All donations are tax deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the Mid-Atlantic Kidney Transplant Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for transplant-related expenses only. Please, consider a contribution.
