Kristina Diaz is awaiting a new lease on life. She has always had kidney issues, but in 2016 her health began to rapidly decline. She was diagnosed with end-stage renal failure and went on dialysis at that time. The dialysis takes a toll on her quality of life and leaves her very tired. Now, doctors say a kidney transplant is necessary for her survival.
During this difficult time, Kristina is thankful for the love and support of her family and friends. Kristina is a single mom with a young daughter, and she wants nothing more than to be an active mom again. Kristina looks forward to receiving a transplant that will allow her to live her life with as few limitations as possible and play with her daughter without feeling tired and weak. But right now, she needs your help.
Unfortunately, Kristina’s hope for a new life comes at a very high price.
The average kidney transplant costs more than $414,000. And that’s only the beginning. Even with insurance, which will cover a portion of the transplant costs, Kristina still faces significant expenses related to the surgery. For the rest of her life, she will need follow-up care and anti-rejection medications. Post-transplant medications are very expensive, and they’re as critical to her survival as the transplant itself. Kristina has to take time off from work when she isn’t feeling well, further adding to her financial burdens.
