I’m a 36 year old single mother of a wonderful and amazing 14 year old son. I have been a single parent since he was 5. I need a kidney from someone with blood type O. If you want to be tested to see if you are a match for me, please call donor team member Stephanie at Froedtert Medical Center at 1-414-805-0310. Tell them you wish to be tested for Carrie Webster. My story: My mother found out …while taking me to my well baby checks that I had blood in my urine. I saw a lot of doctors growing up, but I never understood my situation. After having my son in 2001, I became ill. In 2002, I needed to start dialysis. I was so sick I didn’t remember even seeing doctor and having surgery to have my dialysis access created. All the while on dialysis I was sick, had many infections and surgeries. My surgeon had only a few areas left to work with. In 2005, I got my call on a Friday night for a deceased donor kidney. I was so happy but devastated that another family was grieving over the loss of their loved one. With my newly transplanted kidney I was sick often and rejected a few times. The doctors were able to bring my kidney back several times. They were amazed that I fought that long trying to keep it going. They said I was a fighter. In 2010, they couldn’t save it anymore. I had to begin dialysis again in July 2010. I have so many things going on that I hurt every day. I have appointments all the time with different doctors. I just recently got out of the hospital with a staph infection ended up going home with a hole in my arm that needed daily dressing and a vacuuming for healing. I had numerous surgeries I lost count. When I walk into the doors at the hospital they all know me they say, “Hi Carrie.” I fight every day for my son. All my son knows is his mommy being sick and in and out of hospitals. I live with my mother and she is my rock. Without her I don’t know what I would do. She is always by my side thru all this and I love her very much. I have a big family and most support me and wish they could donate but can’t due to something wrong with them. That is why I am reaching out to the public asking for help. Are you blood type O? If you find it in your heart to test for me, please call Froedtert Medical Center at 1-414-805-0310. The donor coordinator’s name is Stephanie. Tell them you wish to be tested for Carrie Webster.

If you do not feel that living kidney donation is right for you, then I ask that you please share my page. You never know who will end up seeing it. It might just reach that special person…my future donor. Thank you, Carrie WebsterSee More
