Shedrick Taylor

Transplant Type:   Kidney and Pancreas

Shedrick Taylor was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD) in September 2021.  He endures regular dialysis treatments, which leave him exhausted and take a toll on his quality of life. His condition has continued to worsen, and a kidney transplant is necessary not only to improve his quality of life, but also to extend his life expectancy. 

Shedrick is thankful to be surrounded by a strong support system. His children, grandchildren, family, and friends have been by his side every step of the way providing much needed love and encouragement. Shedrick looks forward to the kidney transplant that will allow him to live his life fully again.   More than anything, he would like to be active with his family, but right now, he needs your help.

Unfortunately, Shedrick’s hope for a new life comes at a very high price. 

The average kidney transplant costs approximately $442,000. And that is only the beginning. Even with health insurance, he faces significant expenses related to the surgery. For the rest of his life, he will need follow-up care and daily anti-rejection medications. Post-transplant medications are very expensive, and they are as critical to his survival as the transplant itself.

You can help by making a tax-deductible donation to the National Foundation for Transplants in honor of Shedrick.  100% of your donation goes to fund Shedrick’s transplant. 

If you'd prefer to send your gift by mail, please send it to the National Foundation for Transplants, 3249 W. Sarazen’s Circle, Suite 100, Memphis, TN 38125.  Please be sure to write "in honor of Shedrick Taylor” in the memo line.

Thank you for your generosity!
