Transplant Type: Kidney
Naseema Khalique is awaiting a new lease on life. In 2006, Naseema was diagnosed with chronic kidney failure. Her diagnosis came as a shock, as there is no family history of kidney disease. Over the years, Naseema’s kidney function has declined, and today she has stage 5 end-stage renal disease. She is now on dialysis, which takes a toll on her quality of life and leaves her very tired. Doctors say a kidney transplant is necessary for her survival.
During this difficult time, Naseema is thankful for the love and support of her family and friends. She has two sons, and they worry about her health. Naseema looks forward to receiving a transplant that will free her from dialysis and allow her to be more active. She wants nothing more than to enjoy her life, visit her parents and siblings, and be there for her children to witness their achievements. But right now, she needs your help.
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, Naseema 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.
When Naseema receives her transplant she will have to stay near the transplant center while she recovers, incurring substantial expenses for travel, food, and lodging.
