I Need Your Help!
I have Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), a debilitating disease that attacked my kidneys. Doctors have determined that a kidney transplant is my only hope for a long and healthy life. I need your help to make that happen.

Just wanted to keep everyone updated as a few things have changed.
I have been on dialysis for 3 years now and it has been a long and tiring road. There are so many things I must do to get ready for my Kidney Transplant. I have had quite a few surgeries to get to the point where I am able to receive a transplant, but I’m almost there.
Starting out I had 2 care takers, but that has changed now. One of my care takers had to get a job to help support her family and my other care taker is not able to help out as often due to health issues. Due to the circumstances, I now attend dialysis by myself most of the time. I have dialysis 4 days a week 3.5 hours a day. It is a lot to handle, but I am hopeful.
I have to go to the dentist to get some dental work done as it is crucial for my teeth to be in good health in order to receive my transplant. Dental work is not cheap and it is also not covered by my insurance. I will be hosting a spaghetti dinner and raffle to raise funds for my dental bills. Any donations are helpful and greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone. I’m still in need of kidney transplant. I shaved my hair off in May cause it thinned out so much. But it’s coming back thicker. I have to have a stint put in my fistula so I can continue my dialysis 5 days a week. Still trying to put another fund raiser together. I will update when I have more in fund raiser.
