Who I Am
James Michael McLester is a “blessed kidney recipient” who received the gift of life in 2015 from his close friend, Laura, who became his kidney donor.
Why I Fundraise
“Even with Medicare, there are co-pays and deductibles, follow-up doctor visits, and lab fees.”
How I Hope
“I spent [a quarter] of my adult life requiring dialysis. It was a long and very difficult road, but God has blessed me in so many ways. It feels like a miracle [just] to wake up.”Written by Emily Progin
