COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A Columbus woman is looking for a kidney transplant, and one group is stepping in to help. 

Melinda McDaniel suffers after being born premature. Her son is a match for the transplant, but she still needs help to pay for the procedure. 

She has an account set up at CB&T banks throughout Columbus for anyone looking to help. 

She spoke to us about what it's like suffering every day. 

“Really, when I started dialysis that’s what made me realize how bad it really was because it changes your whole lifestyle,” McDaniel said. 

The Georgia Transplant Foundation has agreed to match all funds raised up to $10,000. However, the deadline to help is Friday, April 15.
