Local Nurse Raising Money For New Kidney
Our community is coming together on Thursday, December 6th because Ginger, a nurse in the Family Birth Center at Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital is in need of help. Nine years ago Ginger discovered she had a kidney problem and has been faced with ongoing health issues ever since. She was lucky enough to receive a kidney transplant earlier this year in September. However, the surgery didn't go as planned and after numerous surgeries and almost loosing her life she is trying to recover. But they are now searching for a new donor and raising money to try again.
Join the cause and show your support for Ginger on Thursday at the Commons on Baxter at 5:30 p.m. for a benefit spaghetti dinner, silent auction and raffle. It's just $10 per dinner plate or $5 per child.
If you're interested in potentially donating a kidney please contact Virginia Mason Hospital Kidney donor line at (206) 342-1201 to get checked to be a potential donor.
