My original fundraising goal was $10,000 dollars and I am very fortunate to know some very outstanding people who helped me obtain that goal to allow me to get the transplant done. However, since the transplant it has been a very challenging and expensive road. After the transplant, I have been going through a rejection and have spent 85 percent of our days at the IU Hospital doing biopsies and steroid injections to try to keep things in line. So far so good, but I am struggling with the additional expense caused by the rejection and the cost of the post-transplant medications which are necessary to keep my kidney healthy. These medications are going to be a life long deal for me, so I am updating my campaign and raising my goal to $20,000.
I am so thankful for everyone's support and hope that you would consider making an additional contribution to help me handle the out-of-pocket medical expense until I can return to work and obtain some good health insurance.
