The cousin, Mike, lives at Heavner, Okla., and is without kidneys. Since the failure of a transplant last year, Mike has been taken by his mother twice weekly to Oklahoma City, a round trip of 300 miles, for use of a kidney machine.

Thousands of coupons will be needed to get the machine and if enough are not received - parts of the machine will be purchased with what is available.
