As some of you may or may not know, Nancy Lavoie has made
the decision to selflessly volunteer to donate her kidney to her friend and
Eleven months ago, Nancy’s friend’s kidney function began to
fail to dangerous levels. Immediately,
Nancy offered to be tested to become a kidney donor, but just because the blood
type was a match did not mean that she would automatically be able to be
donor. After several months of
specialized compatibility testing, doctor’s concluded that Nancy would indeed
be the perfect kidney donor.
People like Nancy, you only meet once in a lifetime. You would be very fortunate to call her your
friend. Giving of herself is nothing new
for Nancy. Nancy has been an
enthusiastic volunteer for American Red Cross, Hospice, and Healing Hearts to
name a few and an event coordinator for Relay for Life fundraisers for many
years. Donating her time to various
charities and performing fundraising events made Nancy feel truly
fulfilled. She loves helping others and
giving them peace of mind. Nancy is the
kindest, most gentile, compassionate and give-the-shirt-off-your-back kind of
person you would ever want to meet.
We are raising money for her on go fund me page as she will
be out of work for 6 weeks: https://www.gofundme.com/nancys-gift
The money we are trying to raise will help Nancy with the
loss of her wages while she is off of work recovering for at least 6
weeks. The funds will also help with
ancillary medical expenses that come with a major transplant surgery as this.
Thank you for taking these couple of minutes out of your
busy day. We truly appreciate you just
reading this or taking an interest in Nancy’s journey. Even if you are unable to donate at this
time, a simple share on social media can help just as much. In addition to donations, please pray for the
dedicated team of doctors who are overseeing Nancy’s surgery and care. We wish her the speediest recovery.
What a gift to be able to give the gift of life to another
human being. Nancy, you are truly our
hero and our Angel!
