Kidney for Kristy

Goofin' off in the hospital. Keeping the spirits high. :)

As I've mentioned before in the about me section, and throughout various blogs, I'm sure, charity work is a huge passion of mine. I love to find needs, and feel them to the best of my ability.

I am currently involved in one of my biggest fundraisers yet. It's extremely important to me, as it's my family. My cousin Kristy is in end stage renal failure and needs a new kidney as soon as possible. But, you see, she's not even on the transplant list, yet. 

I want to help change that. And I know I can. To even qualify to be put on the transplant list, she has to raise $5000 out of pocket just to prove that if she does get a new kidney, she'd be able to pay the 20% out of pocket expenses for her prescription medicines that first year.  If she didn't have insurance, it'd be about $5000 PER MONTH for prescription medication that she will have to be on the rest of her life, once the transplant is complete. Imagine that, $5000 per month, $60,000 a year, on medication.... Though a transplant is the gift of life, like everything else, it comes with a price.

We will deal with the rest when we get to that point, but for now, she must raise the $5000 before October 31st to be considered to get on the transplant list. So, if you would, help us spread the word. The internet is an amazing place for networking.

You can visit her page on facebook and LIKE it to be added to the page, and receive updates:

or you can actually go straight to her fundraising site if you'd like to make a donation (and read A LOT more details about her illness). Every little bit helps. :)

Our God is greater
Our God is stronger
God, You are higher than any other
Our God is healer
Awesome in power
Our God, our God

And if our God is for us
Then who could ever stop us
And if our God is with us
Then what could stand against
- Our God Lyrics by Chris Tomlin
