Fred I'm glad you were able to get a new kidney. Sorry about the difficulties regarding your wife's fees for her visa. I don't know of any grants available for this specific purpose, but here are some things you could try:

- Contact the state department and see if they know of resources for someone in your situation. Be sure they are aware of the fact that you've recently had  kidney transplant.

- If you own your home, is it possible that you could refinance at this time? There are lots of programs regarding home ownership right now.

- Do you have any other family that you (or your wife) could ask for a loan?

- Are you part of a church that might help you out?

- Check out this article with creative ideas about getting more income quickly (and legally!)

Good luck!
