The mission of this fundraiser page.
I have been living with End-Stage Renal (kidney) Failure for about a year and a half now, having dialysis (blood filtering) treatments three days a week, and am now going through the process of receivng a kidney transplant. I am being partially assisted with the mountain of medical and care-related bills by Medicare, but what medicare doesn't cover is still an enormous financial hurdle. And with the prospect of the actual transplant now looming, the out-of-pocket costs are going to mushroom even further.
I've put this page together, with a modest goal, to (hopefully) help chip away at the current and empendings expenses of this transplant surgery.... A literal "life saver". I can't tell you how much ANY and EVERY contribution, no matter how big or small, will mean to me. I'm so incredibly grateful for the support, prayers and positive thoughts of so many friends,and even total strangers. And this fundraiser will help to propell me through the final, and most crucial stage of this unexpected adventure.

Pre-transplant care (30 days prior to surgery): $23,200
Pre-transplant evaluation and testing are necessary to ensure the safety of the transplant. Pre-surgery costs include lab screening for donor compatibility, x-rays, and other tests.
2. Procurement: $84,400
This is the cost of finding and acquiring a matching kidney and can vary based on whether you procure a living-donor kidney or one from a cadaver. A live kidney donation to be overall less expensive than cadaveric donation or dialysis.
3. Hospital transplant admission: $119,600
This is the typical cost for hospital facility charges during the transplant, and it could very well be the most expensive three-to-four hours of your life! Facilities costs cover the expenses of everything in the operating room except for the caregivers.
4. Physicians’ during treatment cost: $20,500
This refers to the professional, non-facility expenses incurred during treatment, such as the doctors and nurses who operate on you.
5. Post-transplant admission: $66,800
This figure covers expenses you may incur after the operation and typically varies widely. Intensive Care Unit (ICU) fees usually set you back around $4,000 per day, but the cost of the in-hospital stay in other units differs. Depending on how long you take to recover, your post-transplant expenses could be more or much less. This figure also includes costs associated with lab tests, outpatient visits, and other services you may need after you leave the hospital.
6. Immuno-suppressants: $19,800
Before doing this transplant, we still need to find a suitable Kidney donor. My blood type is Type B- .
If the amount for the surgery is completed, it will be kept in savings until we have found a donor to complete the surgery, or to reserve a slot for the queue in NKTI HOPE for donors who have passed away. Also, for pre surgery requirements (tissue typing, blood tests, etc for both me and the donor).
