A BENEFIT FOR LESLEY DEASON
This year the All Saints Bazaar will dedicate all profits excluding vendor sales to parishioner Lesley Deason to help defray some of her ongoing medical expenses. The medical costs for treating an autoimmune disorder which attacked her lungs and kidneys are over two million dollars. This does not include expenses associated with a kidney transplant Lesley will have next year. Insurance pays for many but not all expenses. You can help us help Lesley by coming to the All Saints Bazaar and buying bake sale items, parish made crafts, gently used jewelry, or by purchasing morning coffee and donuts or a barbecue sandwich lunch with all the fixings.
Together we can make a difference for Lesley.
A note from Lesley: 2017 was supposed to be the year my husband and I called our “power year”. We had just gotten married in November 2016, and Robbie was preparing to enlist in the United States Army. I was teaching preschool in town. In February of this year I became very ill and was diagnosed with Goodpastures Syndrome. Goodpastures Syndrome is an autoimmune disorder that attacks the lungs and kidneys. I was put on a ventilator in a medically induced coma and immediately given dialysis treatments and plasmapheresis exchanges to help fight off the Goodpastures antibodies. My lungs eventually recovered but my kidneys no longer functioned. I was told that I could receive a kidney transplant once the Goodpastures antibodies were gone. In July, my doctors informed me that my antibody level was negative and that we could schedule a day for the transplant! I was over the moon excited and was so lucky to have a close friend who was willing to give me her left kidney. I could get my life back! Nine days before the scheduled surgery in September, tests showed the antibodies had returned and were too high for the doctors to perform the transplant. Currently we are still waiting for the antibody level to drop to ensure a successful kidney transplant. I am so grateful for all the love, support and prayers that have been given to my family and me.
