Manning, SC (WLTX) - A statewide outreach campaign, has kicked off in order to support the mayor of Manning.
After suffering for many years with polycystic kidney disease, Mayor Julia Nelson learned late last month that her condition had worsened.
The serious nature of her diagnosis has put her in immediate need of a kidney transplant. Due to the genetic nature of the illness, none of Nelson's siblings are viable candidates for a kidney donation.
Community members can help support the campaign by becoming a kidney donation candidate or by making a monetary donation to the Nelson Transplant Fund at any local NBSC bank.
