KIDNEY STORIES: PATTI’S KIDNEY CAMPAIGN

I have systemic lupus, an autoimmune disease that can damage virtually any organ or system in the body. In my case, lupus has caused joint pain, bone deterioration, and kidney failure.  I am looking for someone to donate their spare Kidney.
Description
My name is Patti Schultz. I’m 36 years old and live in Interlochen, Michigan. I’m married to my best friend of 14 years, Kurt Schultz, and we have an energetic 10-year-old son, Kalob.
I enjoy photography, scrapbooking, and spending time with my family. Previous to my illness, I worked in occupational therapy. I took great pride in my career and enjoyed helping others regain their independence af…ter illness or injury.
I have systemic lupus, an autoimmune disease that can damage virtually any organ or system in the body. In my case, lupus has caused joint pain, bone deterioration, and kidney failure.
I need a kidney transplant and am currently preparing for dialysis as I wait for a donor. Because my transplant center, the University of Michigan, participates in paired donation, a person of any blood type can be a living donor for me. If you would like to be tested to see if you are a match, please call my transplant coordinator, Ann Gray, toll-free at 1-800-333-9013 or locally at 734-615-1850. Or, if you prefer, you may e-mail her at anngray@med.umichedu.
My insurance covers all medical expenses, and you do not have to be a resident of Michigan to be a donor. Programs that cover the cost of transportation, lodging, meals, and car rental are available.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story and for considering giving me the Gift of Life. If you are unable to donate but would like to help, please pass my story on to others. Thanks so much.
                                                   Sincerely,                                                    Patti Schultz
