WHY JOIN THE
After receiving a kidney transplant a few months ago, Jaleel’s fight for his life was still far from over. He and his family had to take on another unexpected battle: fighting cancer. The family was faced with a conflict that no family should ever have to face: How do we decide between paying for Jaleel’s medications that are keeping his new kidney from being rejected, or the cancer treatments, both of which are required to save his life?
Without your donation, Jaleel’s family would have been forced to make a decision that would ultimately threaten Jaleel’s health and risk his life. We provided Jaleel with an Emergency Grant to give his family access to his medications, transportation to treatments, and basic living expenses so that Jaleel can return to normal 3-year-old life.
“The financial support from American Transplant Foundation covered costs that came with Jaleel’s post kidney transplant recovery. Jaleel’s life was saved because this resource was available to us.”
