The Lean on Me committee presented kidney transplant patient Anna Watler with a cheque for US$1,800 raised through cake sales and collections outside supermarkets on weekends last month.
The money will go toward covering the medical expenses of the donor, a friend of Ms. Watler’s, who is not covered by the insurance which will pay for the transplant.
Ms Watler said: ‘I would like to thank everyone for their generous support and the Lean on Me committee for all of their support.’
Mother-of-three, Ms Watler was diagnosed with kidney disease two years ago. Her childhood friend Elizabeth Peña from Nicaragua came forward as a donor and was found to be a suitable match.
