Shaun's Kidney Transplant Fund

Personal message

Donate Via Snapscan

My name is Shaun Phelan and I am 23 years of age. I come from a small town on the north coast of KwaZulu-Natal called Stanger.

In 2020 I was diagnosed with chronic kidney failure and I need a kidney transplant. I only have 4% kidney function. I am currently working as a electrical apprentice but due to me having to go for dialysis for 6 hours at a time, 3 times a week. I can't work my full hours and therefore I am not earning a full Salary. 

My mother has been found to be a match for me so she will be giving me a Kidney but My Medical Aid is not covering all the costs of my donor and I would like to request any help with a donation. These costs are towards blood tests, transport, testing that needs to still be done, doctor's visits, etc.

I am also in need of Funds for the transplant itself. Even with being on dialysis, I have been told I need my transplant asap. This has all taken a huge toll on our family. I need this transplant to be able to be there for my mother and sister in the future as they are there for me now. 

The last 2 years have been extremely tough for us all with Both myself and father(who resently passed away) being very ill and mom being the only breadwinner during those times. 

Any donations will be much appreciated to help cover the costs incurred. I am just a young adult who is praying for a miracle so that I can also live a normal functioning life. 

Keep safe and Thank you! 

Shaun Phelan
