Transplant Type: Kidney
What if you were living on borrowed time?
Lori Humann is awaiting a new lease on life. In 2015, she was diagnosed with end stage renal disease (ESRD). Her condition has continued to worsen, and now doctors say a kidney transplant is critical to her survival. While awaiting her transplant, Lori must endure regular dialysis treatments. Dialysis leaves her exhausted and takes a toll on her quality of life.
This has been a difficult time for Lori, as she’s not able to be as active as she once was. She is extremely grateful for the love and support of her son, family and friends, who have been by her side every step of the way. Before her health began to decline, Lori enjoyed traveling, crafting, and being an active part of her son’s life, but these days, her activities are extremely limited. She looks forward to the transplant that will allow her to live life with as few limitations as possible, spend many more years with her family and friends, and to watch her son grow up, but right now, she needs your help.
Unfortunately, Lori’s hope for a new life comes at a very high price.
The average kidney transplant costs approximately $442,000. And, that’s only the beginning. Even with insurance, which will cover a portion of the transplant costs, she still faces significant expenses related to the surgery. For the rest of her life, she will need follow-up care and anti-rejection medications. Post-transplant medications are very expensive, and they’re 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 Lori.
