I am O+ and I need a kidney. Please spread the word
The family and friends of Kristy Martz Hood are uniting to help Kristy raise enough money to be put on the Kidney transplant list this October 2011.
Kristy was diagnosed with FSGS – Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis as a child and had her first biopsy at age 6. FSGS is is a cause of nephrotic syndrome in children and adolescents, as well as an important cause of kidney failure in adults.
Krist…y is now an adult, and in desperate need of a new as she is in end stage renal failure right now.
Kristy has to pay $5,000 OUT OF POCKET up front to show that if and when she receives a kidney, that she can afford to pay the 20% she would owe out of pocket on her prescription medicine for the first year after the surgery. The medication that you take after a transplant to ensure your body doesn’t reject it’s new organ is very costly. Hers will be just over $25,000 which is why she needs to raise $5,000 herself.
You can learn more about Kristy and her battle’s by checking out her giveforward page.
Please pray for Kristy as she continues her battle against her Kidney failure. The only way she can be successful is a Kidney transplant.
