Medical Bill support for Miriam who is overcoming the odds

Posted May 14, 2018
Miriam is currently undergoing dialysis and requires constant medical attention to continue living as normal of a life as possible. Miriam described this wish as being one that would "grant her life." Your support will help Miriam with her medical bills to undergo a kidney transplant and all of the costs associated with it. This wish means the world to Miriam and she hopes that she will have the chance to overcome this too, and ultimately pursue her passions to helping others in the foster care system.

Miriam is 24 years old and lives in Berkely, CA

Miriam entered into foster care as a toddler with her nine siblings. During her time in care, she bounced around many placements, however, despite this, she worked incredibly hard and pursued her dreams of graduating college. Miriam attended and graduated from UC Berkeley, saying, "I've overcome many things in my life - I believe that obtaining my bachelors degree along with growing up around substance abuse was challenging". However, these hardships were met with perhaps the most difficult of all, her current battle against kidney disease and kidney failure. Despite it all, Miriam remains positive. During her free time, she volunteers at a foster youth nonprofit, reads novels, watches movies, and writes poetry.
