JJ’s Legacy’s is currently working to identify the community in need of support on their transplant journeys. We have partnered with Kern County dialysis centers to identify those who are waiting for their life-saving transplant with medical grants and financial assistance in many forms including coverage of transportation costs to assist more patients with frequent travel requirements in completing their pre-transplant process to get on the recipient waiting list. The financial, medical grants we offer help them cover the costs of insurance premiums, doctor’s visits, prescription medicine, lab work and temporary housing during recovery.
Kern County Dialysis Centers provide medical assistance for kidney health including in-center hemodialysis and in-center peritoneal dialysis to promote health and improve the quality of life. Dialysis is a procedure to remove waste products and excess fluid from the blood when the kidneys stop working properly. We hope to identify more community members in need of financial assistance on their organ, eye and tissue transplant journey.
