Journey to a kidney transplant


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

Chronic kidney disease is a problem that I have been dealing with for a year and a half. 2020 was a rough year for me; I lost my sister to COVID-19 on April 12th, 2020 while my mother and I were both in the hospital recovering from COVID-19. Since then, I have been taking care of my mother and myself. 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 deal with my kidney disease has been a constant stress on my mind and body. Right now, I'm taking it day by day trying to keep my mind focused on my health and my mother's health.

Since March 12th, 2020, I’ve been doing dialysis while still working to support my livelihood. I work midnights and then go to my dialysis afterwards on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays which feels like a part-time job. This treatment often leaves me feeling tired and makes it difficult to do the things I enjoy. I would like to socialize with friends and family like I used to do and enjoy 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 to go on family vacations and enjoy life without the constant concerns for my health. I look forward to living a long healthy life and keeping Jehovah God in my blessing.

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 my health and get a grasp on life so I can be able to do more things that I enjoy. A living donor transplant would mean so much to me because it would give me a chance to live a better life. 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,

Leonardo Jones
