Norma Jean Miller-Robinson
Transplant Type: Kidney
UPDATE: Norma received her lifesaving transplant on 10/23/2020!!
Norma Jean Miller-Robinson is awaiting a new lease on life. In 2007, she was diagnosed with membranous glomerular nephropathy that caused her kidneys to fail. Norma Jean received a kidney transplant, but years later, treatment for breast cancer destroyed her transplanted kidney. She is now on dialysis, which leaves her tired and takes a toll on her quality of life. Doctors say a second kidney transplant is critical to her survival.
During this difficult time, Norma Jean is thankful for the love and support of her husband, Evert, and their family and friends. She has two grown daughters and a granddaughter, and her family worries about her health. Norma Jean looks forward to receiving a transplant that will free her from dialysis and allow her to feel like herself again. She wants nothing more than to be healthy so she can continue to take part in the activities she enjoys, like fishing, reading, and taking her grandbaby to the park. But right now, she needs your help.
The average kidney transplant costs more than $442,000, and that’s only the beginning. Even with insurance, which will cover a portion of the transplant costs, Norma Jean 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. Norma Jean had to stop working due to her declining health, further adding to her financial difficulties.
