BENEFITING: RENEWAL OF LIFE INC
The waiting list for a kidney organ is over 10 years. Fortunately Renewal is an organization that matches donors with recipients.
A 42 year old lady who has been suffering from kidney disease for many years. 2 years ago she was left with no choice but to succumb herself to go on dialysis. As a well known fact , life on dialysis is no life at all . It means 3 days a week tied down to a machine for 4 hours at a time. Can we only imagine the thoughts of this woman, “ will this ever end, am I going to die while hooked up to this machine, I am failing my children as a mother, will I live long enough to see my boys get bar-mitzva, see them get married, see grandchilderen”. Then she found Renewal and after a few months of testing they found a kidney match for her. She will now have a second chance at life.
A 58 yr. old father of 3 and grandfather of 6. A musician who now doesn’t know if he will ever be able to play another note again. He has spent the last 2 ½ years of his life hooked up to a dialysis machine that cleans his blood 3 times a week. He can no longer work, function as a father, support his family and has the thoughts that life will soon be over. A MAN WHO AT ONE TIME WAS VERY ACTIVE AND LIVED A VIBRANT LIFE is now a man that wonders what is life worth living for. Renewal has given him a reason to live. After many months of testing Renewal found a match and he will be getting a second chance at life
Friends , this is an oppurtunity to actually save a life!
There are many charities that raise money for all different causes...but this cause is actually saving lives (approx 52 lives a year !)
~~The goal is to raise $37,800 which is the cost to facilitate these 2 transplants. By helping in raising these funds you are taking a share in the lives of these 2 people. In essence you have multiplied your life through them. These opportunities don’t come by everyday, so tell me that you want to join me in making it happen. I will start off with a pledge of $1,800.00 and I hope you will be there with me. Lets be the ones to give these people a second chance at life
