I am a: 2 Time Kidney Transplant Recipient
My story started when I was a kid at 13 knowing I had kidney disease. Months later, my mom wanted to make sure she gave me a normal life, so she gave me one of her kidneys. That lasted 20 years almost. Then I needed another one. I waited for a kidney for 3 years. Then on August 25, 2013, I got a kidney from a deceased donor. I have had for almost 9 years. I have never felt better. Couple of years in 2019 I was contacted through email from the donor. Ever since then, we have exchanged emails. The connection came when I was a volunteer for a Gift of Life event in Michigan.
