Help Her Afford Life-Saving Kidney Dialysis

My Story:

She is a 63-year-old Jacksonville, Florida woman who lives alone. Her only income is her social security disability because the is on PD dialysis 365 days a year. She makes just enough to pay her bills each month.

She is very stressed and depressed because she can't afford the bill for her dialysis this month after a jump in her rent amount. Without dialysis, she could die, so she would be forced to not buy groceries or let her energy service lapse, neither of which is a viable option.

And so, under the Independent Living Grant, this individual is seeking one-time assistance with the cost of her kidney dialysis bill. This help would keep her healthy and safe and allow her to rest her mind about her financial worries.

If this sounds like a good investment to you, then please consider making a contribution to Modest Needs and using your points to vote that we fund her request. Once this application has 100% of the points it needs, we'll immediately send payment for the cost of her dialysis. And afterward, you'll receive a thank you note, written in her own words, expressing how far your 'small change' went toward changing her life for the better.

Thank you for considering this request and for your ongoing support of Modest Needs.
