There are so many people in this world that can't say that, but we healthy people (and even unhealthy people) have the chance to help those who can't say what I can. I've been reading Brown Eyed Bell(e) blog for a while now, and her cousin Kristy needs a new kidney. The downside that is so fucked up it blows my mind? She has to have $5,000 to prove she can pay for her medicine before she can even be put on the wait list. Sorry for the harsh language, but that's a pretty harsh deal.
I totally stole this photo from here.In this country, where people spends thousands of dollars on unnecessary things like clothes, shoes, Starbucks, and lavish cars, there are people who's lives are being lost because they can't afford money to be put on a treatment list. And it's not even guaranteed that she'd get a kidney, it's just the wait list!
So I encourage you, on this glorious Thursday afternoon where you are most likely a healthy human being, to donate some money to her fund. It doesn't matter if it's $1 or $100, everything adds up. Seriously. Skip your latte today and donate $5. It's pretty easy and will make you feel good knowing that you are helping someone! She's only $813 away!
Lastly, here is a timeline of her hospital visits. I can't believe how much she has been through.
