Helping Kelli


BooMama
is one of my favorite blogs to visit, and she has shown that not only is she funny but is caring as well. She recently clued us readers in to a need.

A fellow blogger named Kelli who is married with 2 children is living with severe kidney failure and is on daily dialysis. (Click the link to read Kelli's post about her situation.) She has passed all the tests necessary to even be considered for being put on the transplant list. In order to be placed on the list, she will have to show evidence of her ability to pay whatever part of the bill her insurance won't cover, which could be as much as $100,000. In addition, she is going to have to start paying for COBRA coverage in about 2 weeks.

BooMama had the wonderful idea to designate today For Kelli. She has set up a PayPal account for donations to help Kelli financially and has put the donate button at the bottom of her Kelli update post. You can donate using your PayPal account, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover card. The transaction is guaranteed secure, and the minimum donation is $1.50. That is not a lot of money. Would you consider giving at least the minimum? You never know when you could be the one needing a transplant and the financial help to get it. Oh, and if you do donate or write your own post about Kelli, BooMama is asking that you leave a comment at her update post (click link above) so that Kelli can see how many people care and are helping her.

Thank you, Fergie! I too think this was a fabulous idea. For some reason, this family's plight really touches me. Again, thank you for helping.
