The Way You Love Me
Kidney UpdateI would like to say thank you to everyone that is praying for us! I was diagnosed with genetic medullary cystic kidney disease 10 years ago. My kidneys had begun scarring from the inside which shut them down. I went on peritoneal dialysis for 2 years until I had a transplant in 2010. Several years later, my transplanted kidney began failing, which meant I would need to receive another kidney. In 2018, I had an anonymous living donor donate to me. I had a successful transplant in November 2018!
Living Donors, especially for kidneys, are an option since we only need one kidney to live a healthy life. A living donor is the best option for me and the transplanted kidney lasts an average of 20 years. I am also waiting on the deceased donor list, yet a perfect match on this list typically takes 3-4 years and lasts an average of 10 years.
