Donate for my Kidney Transplant!

Thu Nov 10, 2011, 9:25 PM
Hey guys, long time no see.

I am writing to you just after a rather painful surgery so please forgive me if my words get a little tangled up - I'm pretty drowsy but this is incredibly important to share with everyone.

I have recently been placed on HelpHopeLive.com as a transplant recipient for funraising! This means that should anyone ever wish to, they can donate to my transplant fund directly and know it will safetly be put aside until used specifically on transplant related things.

It means so much to me that people have repeatedly asked to help out, and now I have a solid legitimate way to do so, and it's even tax deductable! So please, head on over to:

HELP HOPE LIVE

And take a peek at my page, maybe make a small donation!

Thanks for everyone's support, I am now a step closer to getting a transplant, and through this fund I will be able to financially afford it.

The Goal

The first goal is at $5,000 , and already at %40 holy crap! Basically once it hits 5k, I am awarded donation help by HelpHopeLive, and then the next goal is 10k and so on and so on. Just wanted to be clear about that! My final set goal is $20,000 to cover everything - and apparently HHL says thats a low average (holy crap) but thats what I'm shooting for. Already my state has donated $2,000 (Thanks AK!) and everyone online has contributed at least $2,000 on their own. So, if that green status bar goes up and down it's because HHL is changing my goal settings! It only updates once a week and with this influx of help from you amazing people, I think they are getting more then they expected to handle. Wowee! I can't thank everyone enough, but I sure will try my damndest to do it. I can barely keep up with all your love, and it just makes me want to explode. Thank you so much.

Paypal is not accepted

I cannot, and will not accept personal Paypal Payments. I'm sorry. I continue to get notes about this, and I'm sad to say it's not feasable. Please go here if you want to read about why --> neolucky.tumblr.com/post/12762… It's just not acceptable unless you 1.) Have a paypal debit card (Which is free to own) or 2.) Buy a prepaid greendot card. Both would work. But unfortunately direct paypal payments are not available at this time, despite my asking HHL to take them. But thank you so much for your support! I want this to be a transparent fundraiser so you are welcome to ask -any- question should you have them.

After the outpouring of love from Tumblr, I started one myself. I will have a FAQ posted eventually but for now Im answering just about anything over there so please head over! ---> neolucky.tumblr.com/ &nbs… may not be my prim ary art tumblr, but I may crosspost my doodling work there as well as my personal blog.

Long time no blah blah blah...
This whole situation sounds like a horrible affair,
Still accepting commissions? I love your art and would love a piece of my own,
I have a few dollars to spare and I wanted your work personally. If you can't, I understand and will
instead donate through the website.

Let me know Comrade~

I'm glad things seem to be going well for you, and I know what you're going through :) I lost one kidney when I was 14 and the other at 20, and now, at 22, I have a new kindey and a new life <3 I hope dialysis works well for you, and that it doesn't make you feel sick! Look forward to when it's all over and you can eat and drink anything you want again! :DDD

I'm very sorry to hear you have ckd my mom just got diagnosed with it and i was so angry about it because she is young... but look at you... you only 28 and already suffering from it, it tear me apart to see the fucking tubes on her neck for the emergency dialisis... and i dont even wanna see her when she gets the dialisis by the arm because she is gonna have bumps everywhere it makes me rage so much... ckd is such a deteriorating sickness... i will donate you something because i hope you can get the cirgury ASAP... im myself gonna donate a kidney to my mom... i hope you do alright from do dialysis from every session... best wishes from nyc ~~

aw gosh...thank you. I really wish the best for your mom. Honestly, I am thaqnkful for dialysis (from neck, from arm, from stomach). If she can, tell her to look into Peritoneal Dialysis, its really really a lot less painful and daily so you have much more freedom (I do mine when I sleep!) Hemo (through the arm) depressed me so badly, I had to make the change. So I totally think PD is an option for the best.

I just found out through shinOrOz on FA, since I don't watch many journals on DA (they flood my inbox and I never read them). Completely by chance. I hope you're doing well! I was only able to spare $10, but I hope it helps at least a little. :(
