Hello everyone! My name is Rory Woodford and I am 36 years of age. Three years ago, I was met with the most challenging of situations. I discovered that I had E.S.R.D or End Stage Renal Disease. This happens when the kidneys are no longer filtering out toxins the way normal kidney function does. Life since then has been truly a struggle. Constant hospital visits and co-pays have built up at a alarming rate. I am currently in school and just recently became a published writer! It's been a balancing act juggling dialysis, school, meetings etc, but I make it work. Now, I am working on getting a kidney transplant. There are alot of stipulations that go with becoming active on the list. One of which is having a clean, safe place to recover after surgery, reliable transportation to and from places. Much of which I've been working on, within my means. Now, I am reaching out to you for help... I truly believe that if I can get all of this in order, then I will become active on the transplant list and be that much closer to a better recovery. Anything is a blessing, and anything will help!!!
