Young mom, kidney recipient donates money to Helping Hands

KILGORE, TX (KLTV) -

A barbecue fundraiser was held in Kilgore to raise money for a young woman who suffers from Lupus. The community raised $2,000 to help out young mom Samantha Mosley, who initially thought the cost of her monthly medications after her kidney transplant would be extremely high.

Thankfully, she learned from her doctor that the bills weren't as high as she thought, but the fundraiser plans were already set.

Sammy decided to continue with the fundraiser, and is now planning to donate the $2,000 to Helping Hands of Kilgore. The organization will disburse the money throughout the community to others in need.
