Team Joy has started this fund raiser to help one of the most selfless women that I have ever known.  Joy is a model of a Godly woman that one would want to pattern their life after.  I've never heard a grumble, complaint or anything negative out of this most precious saint.  She has lived her life as a humble servant not asking anything in return.  We feel that now it is our turn to help show our love & appreciation for Joy.  Please join us in showing Love for JOY!!!  Here is a short version, in her own words, of what she has had to endure for the last 6 years and what she is now facing.

Having learned my kidneys were operating at only 17%, I was scheduled for a transplant on October 27th 2009 at U.A.B. hospital in Alabama.  Due to complications the kidney never functioned properly and was taken out on December 1st 2009.  I had to have 7 procedures done before leaving U.A.B.  Since then I have been on dialysis three times a week, each session lasting about 3 & 1/2 hours.  The doctor has now told me that I need a double hip replacement due to all of the heavy medications.  It is very difficult to even walk at times.  With each step I'm in very much pain.
