Welcome to My Personal Page

I am a client of Georgia Transplant Foundation’s (GTF) Transplant Fundraising Program (TFP) and I am fundraising for costs related to my kidney transplant that will not be covered by my current insurance plan. 

Through my involvement with GTF, I may be eligible to receive matched funds up to $10,000 for every dollar that I raise, which can be used for my post-transplant related costs.  

Transplantation can be an overwhelming situation and patients are encouraged to plan ahead for some of the uncovered and unforeseeable costs.  GTF thanks you for your support of my endeavor to assume self-responsibility for my medical needs through fundraising.

FACT: The cost of immunosuppressive medications typically ranges from $20,600 to $32,900 per year and even with insurance, medicine co-pays can be unaffordable. Fundraising is a matter of life and death for some transplant candidates, and a matter of quality of life for others. 

To donate to my campaign, please click the Support button or mail checks to the: Georgia Transplant Foundation, 500 Sugar Mill Road, Suite 170-A, Atlanta, GA 30350, and enter my name in the memo field of your check.  For more information please contact the Transplant Fundraising Program at 1-866-428-9411 or 770-457-3796 or by visiting www.gatransplant.org. Thank you!

I received my kidney on September 18, 2016 from Kathryn Sorrells. She was my perfect match and we did not know each other till we met the night before surgery. Kathryn is a very giving and caring lady. She is my kidney sister forever.
I am doing very well my Kathryn kidney is working beautifully. I am so thankful for her gift of love that has given me my life back.
I continue to get stronger each day and adjust to the meds.
Thank you for your prayers and financial support. There will be a 5K race March 26,2016. http://Kidney4deb5k.com is where you can register
