Journey to find a Living Kidney Donor

My name is Chris, and I am hoping to find a kidney donor.

Chronic kidney disease is a problem that I have been dealing with for 5 years. Unfortunately, over time my kidney disease has continued to progress to the extent that I will need a kidney transplant. The effects and treatments required to combat it have been a constant stress on my mind, body, and soul.

Since March of 2020, I’ve been doing dialysis, having frequent doctor visits, and seeing a decline in my health, all while still working to support myself and my family. Dialysis often leaves me feeling tired and makes it difficult to do the things I enjoy, like going for walks, long drives, spending time with family, and enjoying what life has to offer.

I look forward to the day that I can get my normal life back. It would be a blessing to be able to be travel, accomplish daily tasks, and enjoy life without the constant concerns for my health.

I am on the waiting list for a kidney, however that can often take years to get a match. I am hoping to find a living donor because it will improve the quality of my life and allow me to see my family. I would be grateful if you could help me find a match by getting tested or sharing this information with your own network of friends, family and community.

I sincerely thank you,
