A Beloved Member of Beth Miriam Still Needs our Help
Dear friends,

I want to share this video with you. My friend, Judy Tenzer Benn has end stage kidney disease and desperately needs a life-saving donor kidney, blood type O. She is working with a remarkable organization called Renewal that helps match donors with those in need of their generosity. Renewal has found that an email campaign can be an effective technique, so I am hoping you can help me cast the widest net possible.
Spreading the word is so valuable. So, I am sending each of you this video in the hope that it may inspire you or someone you know to do the incredible good deed of donating a kidney to save a life.

A Message from Sam and Summer

As I found out more about Renewal, I was surprised to learn how many people have acted. Many have donated and gone on to live totally normal and healthy lives. If you would like to learn how you can save a life or for more information about kidney donation, please call 718-431-9831 ext. 209 or email R23282@renewal.org. Renewal’s website is www.renewal.org. All inquiries to Renewal are strictly confidential and are without any obligation. They can also put you in touch with others who have donated a kidney and are willing to share their experience. All medical costs for evaluation and surgery are covered by the recipient’s insurance. Related costs such as travel expenses and lodging, may be covered by Renewal.

Please share this with people with whom you email. Please also post just the attached picture, as well as the video A Message from Sam and Summer, on Facebook. You never know whether or not there is someone who will respond to this urgent need.

We will be grateful beyond words,

Ashley Brousell
