More Info

My wife Arleen and I met almost 25 years ago.  We are best friends and life partners. 

For the past 2 years she has been battling Kidney disease. 

We have been to so many internists, nephrologists and urologists-- making sure to get second and third opinons.  She has had MRIs, tons of bloodwork, and so many other tests done.  She has changed her entire lifestyle, including her diet, but kidney disease is complicated because you must find your own balance in relation to potassium, creatinine, phosphorous, protein, etc. and there have been bloodwork scares because of this. 

Arleen's entire life has changed because of this disease. She takes her blood pressure every day, needs routine bloodwork to monitor potassium, creatinine, and phosphorous levels,  takes specific pills at specific times (that often have specific instructions that must be followed). She organizes all of these details in a notebook and makes little baggies of all of her daily pills.  Arleen is fighting this and winning. 

Now she has successfully completed her first surgery and the medical bills for this surgery are very high. 

In our lives, Arleen and I have helped many people.  Arleen was a school teacher for 12 years.  If you've been lucky enough to meet Alreen, then you've experienced her Angel energy firsthand, and you know just how special she is.

We have never asked for help and we are asking for help now.   This is not easy, but we feel that receiving help is an important part of living life, and right now, we really need help so we can pay her bills.  Any amount will help.  We appreciate your support so much.  Thanks for reading this-- We appreciate it.
