This is Kylie Renee.
She is 8 years old, and waiting on a multi-organ transplant for her small intestine, liver, and pancreas. Basically, she is missing one of these organs and the other two are no longer functioning within her body and she needs to have them replaced with working organs.
When she was born, her small intestine was twisted, and she had to have it removed. When she was 18months old, she received a small intestine transplant and lived with it for around 3 1/2 years, before her body rejected it and she had to have it removed. Since then, she has had to live without a small intestine on a nutritional supplement (meaning she doesn’t eat regular food, she’s fed by IV), which is currently destroying both her liver and her pancreas. She recently reached the top of the active transplant list for the three organs she needs, meaning that if a match of the organs she needs comes up, she has top priority to receive them.
Kylie’s mother is a single mother and a very close friend to the family. She has more children than just Kylie, and as you can imagine, medical expenses are large with a medical condition like this. Medical bills, travel costs (they live 900 miles away from her transplant hospital), and living expenses make up the overall cost of everything that goes into this. When Kylie eventually transplants, she will have to stay in the hospital for at least a year in recovery, which will add significantly to the cost when the time comes. It’s going to be a pretty penny to pay, and they’re already struggling financially as the conditions surrounding Kylie’s situation worsen.
So, recently (as in within the past few days), some events that cannot currently be disclosed took place, and now Kylie and her family need emergency funds to sustain Kylie’s current medical progress. Her mother has a GoFund account set up for donations for the expenses needed. Their current goal is $2000, and they only have $300 as of right now. Any extra donations past $2000 will also be greatly helpful. They are in serious need of anything they can get at the moment, so please, I ask you tumblr to help with this.
Even if you donate only $5, that’s fine! If 500 people donate a mere $5 each, that’s $2500, well over the goal they’re trying to reach. Again, here’s the link to the GoFund account set up for Kylie: http://www.gofundme.com/9q8ef0
GoFund is PayPal friendly.
Please, please, please donate if you can. Any amount will help.
And even if you can’t donate, please reblog this and spread the word. The situation at the moment needs urgent attention.
