Anna Matusik


I would love the chance to live and enjoy my life

My name is Anna Matusik but my friends and family call me Ania. I am 40 years old and I live in New Britain with my dog Mila. I love to spend time with my family/ friends, travel, and explore new places. I work in healthcare as an interventional radiology tech. It requires me to be on my feet for a long period of time. Its a very demanding job but I love it.

Over 10 years ago I felt very sick and blood work showed that I was in kidney failure. After many tests, a biopsy showed that I have IgA nephropathy. IgA nephropathy (nuh-FROP-uh-thee), also known as Berger's disease, is a kidney disease that occurs when an antibody called immunoglobulin A (IgA) builds up in your kidneys. It’s a genetic disease and there is no cure for IgA nephropathy.
I have been on a transplant list for a while but it takes 5-8 years to find a match from a deceased donor. That is why I’m looking for a live donor to increase my chances of survival.
I am very weak and try my best to continue working in the field I love. Sometimes it gets overwhelming and my body slowly shuts down.

I would love the chance to live and enjoy my life like I used to.
I am hoping that someone feels the need to help another person and donate a kidney that would save my life.

I am registered at Yale New Haven Hospital. If you are interested or have questions about donating you can contact me directly at (860) 539-9533 or YNHH transplant center at (866) 925-3897. My insurance will cover the cost of a donor’s evaluation and surgery. My transplant coordinator can provide information about this if you would like to learn more.
