As Audra provides Shannon with a gift of organ donation, please consider helping her too! Audra and her family will incur numerous expenses and partial loss of wages while she misses work. To help their family, Appalachian Regional Healthcare Foundation is establishing a fund to offset these losses.

If you would like to support Audra and her family during this time of need you can donate online below or send cash or check to:

These donations are not considered tax deductible by the IRS as they will be provided directly to the family. The Foundation will notify Audra’s family of every donor who contributes to this important cause.
