Event Details

The goal of this event is to raise funds for a kidney transplant on behalf of Shamicka James.

Shamicka James is at the end stage of Kidney Disease, which resulted from Lupus Nephritis. She has been battling the disease for four years, and had to take a medical leave from school and also a leave from daily life activities. A kidney transplant will help Shamicka to function, perhaps to return to school, and to live a "normal" lifestyle; one that includes less pain, fewer hospitalizations, no blood transfusions, the ability to walk, and to engage in daily activities without limitations. A kidney transplant costs about $250K for the procedure, and about $300K for the first 2 years thereafter.  Inspite of health insurance, the costs to the family are prohibitive. It feels uncomfortable to ask for help. However, the awareness that this venture cannot be succesful without your help,  it thus behooves the request for assistance.  Your presence at the event will be tremendously appreciated.  If for any reason you are unable to attend, please donate whatever little you can.  Every little amount helps.  Thank you kindly. Donations can be made at:
