KIDNEY STORIES: FIND A KIDNEY FOR OUR MOM

KIDNEY STORIES: FIND A KIDNEY FOR OUR MOM       

 

Paula, our mom, has only 1 kidney and it’s failing her. She desperately needs another one.  Please share this page!

Description

8 years ago, my mom was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease. One kidney was removed, and the other has been sustaining her. She was maintaining a level of function for a while, but recently her numbers are plummeting and dialysis is imminent. My brother and I have been tested to be donors for her, but we were saddened to find out we were not matches. My dad is willing to donate his kidney as p…art of a paired donation kidney program at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. We have been told by Mayo Clinic that she may be hard to match, and in order to give her the best chance of survival, we need more people to be tested to increase the odds of finding her a match. Next year, my mom will hopefully be celebrating her 70th birthday, and my parents will hopefully be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.
