    Wow! I never heard anything again about your mom since I last talked to Nikki. I just thought I google my name and I saw this one. Hopefully your mom gets to complete recovery soon. God bless you and your mom. =)

    Hello Archie- i know we dont know each other personally, but by chance, I have encountered this site. I am about to create a site for my partner who is suffering from a kidney problem. And your site has everything I have thought of. I have a daughter who will turn two and i know she would do the same thing you’ve done to your mom if she’s only able to.

    Just wanted to let you know, that your site has full of hope and I only pray we would achieve the same success you have for your mom- from fund raising to a successful kidney operation.

    Again thank you for being an inspiration.

    -Roselle and my daughter iya
