A personal journey to find a kidney donor. Search for a kidney
[06/03/18] Thank you to my courageous friend and donor, my team of Doctors and Nurses at the University of Maryland Transplant Center and my wonderful family. I will post more during my recovery.
[08/24/17] Twenty three years ago, I was diagnosed with Lupus – specifically, membranous glomerular nephritis. From the outset, it affected my kidneys. My incredible team of nephrologists and primary care physicians in New York and Maryland were able to manage my disease effectively. In late January of this year, things got worse. Now I am undergoing crucial daily treatments to preserve my remaining kidney function.My goal, from the moment I started dialysis has been to be a candidate for a living donor kidney transplant.
