Dear Friends:

In 2007 at the age of 19, Samantha was diagnosed with IGM Nephropathy which progressed to Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis which is leading cause of kidney failure in adults. Currently her kidneys are functioning at 15%, compared to yours which function normally at 60-100%.

On Monday May 9th, she was evaluated by the ECMC Transplant Services Department and has been put on their transplant list.  We are holding this benefit to help cover her out-of-pocket medical expenses, as well as the recovery time of 3-4 months.

We are seeking donations from area businesses to help make our Chinese Auction a success. Any donation, no matter how big or small, will be gratefully appreciated.  We would also like to advertise your business, so please include a business card to put on the display with your donation.  We will also link to your website from

You can either send your donation to one of the contacts listed below, or give us a call and we will be happy to pick up your donation.  A monetary donation may be made payable to Samantha McKillen & mailed to Karen Jenkins' address listed below or via Paypal at
