Transplant Type: Kidney
What if you were living on borrowed time?
Chandrawati Singh has been given a second chance at life. In December 2014, she was diagnosed with heart failure. Her condition continued to worsen, and she had to have a left ventricle assist device (LVAD) implanted in June 2015. The LVAD took a toll on her kidneys and eventually led to kidney failure. Chandrawati was forced to begin enduring regular dialysis treatments which left her exhausted and impacted her quality of life even further. Doctors said a heart and kidney transplant was critical for her survival. Luckily, she received her transplant on June 16, 2021!
Despite her recent health obstacles, Chandrawati is grateful to have a loving and supportive family. Her husband of more than 36 years, Dexter, and their three sons have been by her side every step of the way. Chandrawati looks forward to fully recovering from her transplant so that she can live her life again. She is ready to get back to cooking, gardening, being active in her church, and spending time with her loved ones, but right now, she needs your help.
Unfortunately, Chandrawati’s new life comes at a very high price.
Even though Chandrawati’s surgery has already taken place, and her insurance will cover a portion of the transplant costs, she still faces significant medical expenses related to the surgery. She will continue to need a lifetime of follow-up care and daily anti-rejection medications, which are as critical to her survival as the transplant itself.
You can help by making a tax-deductible donation to the National Foundation for Transplants in honor of Chandrawati.
If you'd prefer to send your gift by mail, please send it to the National Foundation for Transplants, 3249 W. Sarazen’s Circle, Suite 100, Memphis, TN 38125. Please be sure to write "in honor of Chandrawati Singh” in the memo line.
Thank you for your generosity!
