It was so hard to ask for help

I wanted to share a short note to say Thank you for helping us pay some of our bills.  I work for the School District and am out of work 3 months of the year.  The last paycheck I got was in June, and I won’t see another until the end of October.  Luckily my husband has two jobs, so we’ve been able to make our house payments.  But since I’ve had kidney failure, it’s been really hard to pay for everything, especially all my medical treatments and medications.  It was so hard for me to ask for (financial) help.  It was humiliating, but I had no options left.  I can not tell you how grateful I am for that little extra help paying for my meds.  It meant so much to me, and took such a huge burden off mine and my husband’s shoulders this summer.  God Bless everyone who has donated to the Kidney Foundation.  Thank you so very much for your assistance.  I can only hope that one day I’ll have a transplant and will be able to repay this kindness to the Kidney Foundation myself.  Sincerely,   Michelle S.

You are in our prayers

My husband and I would like to say thank you for the tremendous financial grant to pay our power bill.  We have been in such a financial crunch to pay all our medical bills.  We are in the process of trying to lose enough weight for my husband to qualify to be on the kidney transplant waiting list.  We are hoping that by October, he will be healthy enough to be eligible to be on the waiting list.  We truly appreciate great organizations, like the Kidney Foundation, who help people like us in need.  We are greatly in your debt, and praise God for another day.  We also pray for all of those who help us with my husband’s kidney problems on a daily basis; our doctors, nurses, and dialysis technicians.   Without the help and support of others, I know we could not make it.  We barely survive on my income.  Just know, that your help and kindness to us was deeply appreciated.  We keep you in our prayers that you may continue to help others, like us, who are in need.  Thanks to you, and all the Kidney Cars and other donations that make it possible for you to help us.  Sincerely,   R. & C.
