Transplant Type: Kidney
Maebelle Hudson is awaiting a new lease on life. Fifteen years ago, she began to have kidney issues. She was diagnosed with kidney failure, which came as a shock, as there is no family history of kidney disease. Her illness leaves her tired and takes a toll on her quality of life. Maebelle now faces end-stage kidney failure. Doctors say a kidney transplant is critical.
During this difficult time, Maebelle is grateful for the love and support of her husband, Adam, and their family and friends. She has three children and two grandchildren, and her illness causes them a lot of worry. She looks forward to receiving a transplant that will give her back her energy and allow her to feel like herself again. Maebelle enjoys spending time with her family and friends, playing games, and volunteering. She wants nothing more than to be healthy so she can continue to enjoy time with her loved ones and be able to travel to Texas again. But right now, she needs your help.
The average kidney transplant costs more than $414,000, and that’s only the beginning. Even with insurance, which will cover a portion of the transplant costs, Maebelle 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.
