James Millender


In search of a kidney donor


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

Chronic kidney disease is a problem that I have been dealing with for about 4 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 October 2018, I’ve been doing dialysis, attending frequent doctor visits, and experiencing declining health, while still working to support myself and my family. I also lost my sight due to my chronic kidney disease. This treatment often leaves me feeling tired and makes it difficult to do the things I enjoy, like spending time with family and friends 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 more active, move forward with independent vocational classes and independent living, get back into the workforce, 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 of the additional benefits. A living donor transplant would mean so much to me because it will show that someone out there cares. 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,
James Millender
