Kevin Needs a Kidney Benefit Auction

My Friend Kevin has Cystinosis, a rare genetic disorder that causes kidney failure. Kevin had a transplant in 2008, but has been fighting acute rejection of the transplant. The transplanted kidney is no longer viable and he needs to start emergency dialysis and he needs a new transplant.

I am raising funds to help him cover his medical costs that aren't covered by insurance. Kevin has already had about $2000 out of pocket expenses related to the transplant surgery. Since care is ongoing after a transplant, the costs are also ongoing, and out of pocket costs are expected to be around $4000 more. 

I have started an auction to raise money for him! The auction will be held on my jewelry page on face book from April 8th-15th. If you'd like to donate you can email me at MrsGambizzle@yahoo.com to get more info. Otherwise make sure you stop by and check out all the amazing things that have been donated! and above all PLEASE spread the word, the more people who see it, the more money we can make for him.
