This is my friend, Ann. She is a devoted single mom to three boys. She is a loving sister. She is a loyal friend. She is a tenacious and brave woman but she is not invincible. This is my friend Ann Forest, and she has Polycystic Kidney Disease. While we all face daily choices that shape our respective lives, Ann did not chose this disease. Ann has chosen to unconditionally love those in her life, but she did not chose to give her life to an invasive disease. With her kidneys now functioning at a dangerously low level of 19%, each day her symptoms worsen and continue to take a toll on her ailing health. Although she is being screened for a donor, several debilitating symptoms prevent her from obtaining long term employment. If she does not find a donor soon, within months she will be on dialysis; and if you don't already know...that sucks. While she utilizes all state aid programs that are available to her, the expenses are daunting and not all pre-screening procedures are completely covered. As you can well imagine, these procedures and medications are far too expensive for someone on a tight budget, a budget like hers. These expenses are only going to multiply post surgery (should she find a donor) as she will have to recuperate for several months/weeks. We understand times are tough and we are not asking for much, whatever you can give to help. That cup of double mocha latte at Starbucks you'd buy, we are talking that kinda small donation, any amount would help out tremendously! Much love and appreciation to everyone who is willing to contribute the smallest amount. Thank You. Thank You.
