#LifeIsFragile…Just Ask James

A part of the South-Central Transplant Fund

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.”
