#LifeIsFragile…Just Ask Melissa

A part of the Southeast Transplant Fund

Who I Am

“On my 17th birthday, I started hemodialysis to treat end-stage renal disease. My gift of life gave me ten years of freedom. I now find myself in need of a second transplant.”

Why I Fundraise

“If I maintain less than $12,500, I will be removed from the kidney waiting list. Dialysis is costing me $3,000 to $4,000 per month. Finding Help Hope Live has been a godsend.”

How I Hope

“A transplant will mean I get my life back…no more hooking up to a dialysis machine for 11 hours per day!”
