Teresa Vaccaro Needs A LIVING Kidney DONOR

Please help me find a kidney donor for my mom!

I enjoy playing board games with my mom and helping her decorate for her favorite holiday: Christmas. My mom is extremely nice and always takes care of her family. She loves to help others and enjoys having conversations with her family and friends.

My mom has always enjoyed the beach and ocean/pool, and ever since she had to start dialysis, she has not been able to get into the ocean or pool. My mom also enjoys traveling and visiting friends and family. With dialysis, she has to bring a lot of equipment with her and limits what she can take or brings back with her. Also, she has to schedule shipments of her supplies well in advance and make sure it arrives before she travels. She has to plan her daily routine around her dialysis, so she doesn’t always get to stay out later with family and friends.

When my mom finally is able to receive a kidney, she will be able to enjoy being around family and friends more, going on trips especially the beach to enjoy the ocean and pool. She will be able to do a lot of things without worrying what time of night it is and rush home to do dialysis.

I’m sharing this with you, so hopefully someone will see this or know someone who would be a donor!
