Description
Hi Everyone! For those of you who don’t already know who I am, my name is Camilia. The purpose of this page is to try and help speed up the process for my cousin Amy Taylor to recieve a kidney transplant.
Amy was diagnosed with kidney disease as a toddler at the tender age of 2. The doctors at UCLA knew her kidneys would fail and tried to slow the progression of the kidney failure. She has been …in and out of the hospital most of her life.
She has been on the Kidney waiting list for about 8 years now and because of her O+ blood type, the wait list is much longer than usual. In 2003 she had a cardiac arrest due to low potassium levels which was caused by her kidneys inability to regulate these levels. For the past 3 years she has been undergoing diyalisis treatment.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with this treatment: Diyalisis is a process in which the patients blood is pumped out of their body into a machine, which acts like a kidney to purify the blood, and then returned. This process is repeated as many as 3 times a week. Each treatment takes anywhere from 3 – 5 hours.
Amy is now 34 years old and is recently married. She plans to have children and start a family but is unable to do so without a transplant. 
If you or anyone you know has questions or is interested in possibly being a donor please contact either myself or Amy directly.
The way they find out if your a match is a simple blood test.
We know this is a big favor to ask and since most of you will be unable to help, we would love for you to recommend this page to everyone in your friends list so that we can get it out there and hopefully find a willing donor. It would mean the world to her just to see people trying to support her battle with Kidney Failure.
You can contact Amy for more info @ tweetyas@gmail.com
Thank You!
