Sharon Works Hymes Needs A LIVING Kidney DONOR

It takes a village, but we can do this. Let's get the word out and help Sharon!

I met Sharon when our girls where in pre-school, 13 years ago. Our families met and there was an instant connection at all layers of our family -- fathers, daughters and of course Sharon and I. We have since shared birthdays, holidays, baptisms and vacations. I really enjoy our conversations about the Bible, our faith, how we practically live out our faith and share ways to encourage our kids to do the same.

Sharon's kidney failure has negatively affected her participation in many activities, to include going to her daughters functions and family vacations to mention a few. I know dialysis is an option for Sharon; however, seeing my own mother go through dialysis I know personally how that can take a toll on a person's body. I remember how tired my mom was on dialysis days and how that prevented her from attending her grandkids activities and many other important functions.

When Sharon shared with me about her need for a kidney, my husband and I volunteered to be a living donor. Unfortunately during the screening process we found out that neither of us were a match for Sharon. Although this was sad news, we are encouraged as CHAMPIONS to help Sharon find a donor. As you many know, we only need one kidney to live a full life. Please consider coming alongside us through prayer, sharing Sharon's story and being screened as a living donor.
