My Name Is: Shelii Spana
I am a: Transplant Recipient
“My name is Sheli Spana, a pharmacist and Diabetes Educator for Madison, MS. I lost both of my kidneys to lupus an immunocompromising disease that can affect any organ in your body. Lupus affected both kidneys. I was on several methods of dialysis for about 5 years. I received my kidney from a living donor in Nashville, Tennessee. The transplantation took place at the Vanderbilt Medical Center. It has been over 11 years since I received my kidney. Another birthdate. (August 11, 2011). Another chance at life.
Thank God for Donors.They are our Heroes. Love my new life…Serving others to become a change for a healthy lifestyle.
