This appeal is important for reasons!
Out of the blue, age 26—Scott discovered his kidney function was 6%. He started dialysis immediately and began preparing for a kidney transplant.
Then came more worrying news. The transplant would take place in Melbourne—more than 500km from Scott’s home in Launceston, Tasmania.
How could Scott ever afford somewhere to stay near the hospital for 6-8 weeks?
Since the diagnosis, Scott hadn’t been able to work much, and neither had his partner, Laura. Laura had sold her car. Family had helped, but there was only so much they could do.
“The diagnosis was frightening, but financial worries nearly broke us,” says Laura.
