My wife, Patty Reed suffers from chronic kidney disease, CKD. We are thrilled to tell you that on November 13, Patti received the gift of life, a life saving kidney transplant. To help her with the overwhelming cost of this lifesaving transplant Patty needs the help of her friends and lifelong community.
Patty grew up in Chico, graduated from Butte College and has owned several businesses in Chico. She has been a hairdresser for over 50 years in Chico, owned Barbery Coast Salon for 25 years and volunteered 15 years with Park Watch. Patty is a talented artist and is trying to stay very involved with her pottery, sculpting, and painting. She has helped so many people along the way and now she needs your help. Patty is blessed with a wonderful family and support team that is committed to seeing her through this life-saving transplant.

Please donate. 3 months from transplant there are a few ups and downs. The signs of anemia are popping up which means expensive drugs. The biopsy to check the new kidneys was done, they have some scaring and the doctor is keeping an eye on this. They checked for rejection and no rejection this was great. It is a process especially the first year.

It will be 8 weeks from my transplant. The doctor are still adding drugs that were not included on my new drug list plan. This continues to raise the high cost of the uncovered medical expenses. Please contribute to my campaign. I’m very greatful to those who have continued to help me.
As of this date my energy level is still low but there is improvement in my red blood cells. I still can’t walk more then 10 min. If I walk out side I have to be very careful of the sun, one of my drugs is photo sensitive. I wear a funny hat and use 70 sun screen and a medical mask. It is quite a site, the neighbors didn’t recognize me. Lol. Thank you for your help
