Jay Fay's Fundraiser:

Kill Kidney Disease!

THE STORY:

My cousin Sarah's husband, Mike Moina, saved his brother Sean's life by donating his kidney when they were in high school. If that wasn't enough their parents were Irish immigrants and all 10 of the kids had to work to support their family and take care of Sean's medical needs. If you know them then I don't have to tell you how hard it would be to find nicer, warmer or more generous people.

I got involved with the National Kidney Foundation a few years ago and it is an unbelievable organization that puts more than 81 cents of every dollar donated toward research, treatment and prevention of kidney disease and other related diseases. The NKF is hosting its 30th Annual Gala this year in Philadelphia. Last year we smashed the fundraising goal for the night and this year we need to soar even higher. My cousin and her husband work so hard but between bills and raising two of the best little boys in the world they don't get too many nights out on the town. So I decided to make it my goal to raise enough money to send them with Sean and his wife to the Gala! I am trying to cover everything for them including tux rentals, dresses, hotel rooms, etc and I need your help!!! If anyone can help out with any of those things please contact me!

1 in 9 people have kidney disease and most don't even know it because the only way to find out is to get tested for it. It can be a slow killer but so often it isn't detected until it is very advanced and then a donor kidney is needed just for the patient to survive. So if it hasn't already it is very likely that Kidney Disease will affect you or someone you love!
KIDNEY DISEASE KILLS MORE AMERICANS EVERY YEAR THAN BREAST CANCER AND PROSTATE CANCER COMBINED!!
Thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart!!
