Yard sale to raise funds for Terrell Co. woman's organ transplant

TERRELL CO., GA (WALB) -

A Terrell County woman says her community has gone above and beyond to help her receive a much needed organ transplant but that she still needs your help.

Julie McKendree has been a diabetic for over 30 years and recently began dialysis. Now, McKendree is a potential candidate for a kidney-pancreas transplant. Her family has organized a yard sale to raise money for the operation, asking for donations to sell.

McKendree said the response has been overwhelming. "It's overwhelming on the amount of items we've been given and just the community coming together, people we don't know and people we do know. It's just amazing."

The yard sale will be held Saturday, October 4th from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Bank of Terrell in Dawson.
