My name is Stephanie, and I am asking for your help to save my life.
I have had my first kidney transplant for 25 years (in April!). I love to travel. I love “really good” tv shows—all time faves include The Office and Game of Thrones. I enjoy concerts / live music. I listen to my favorite podcasts religiously & get caught up in my favorite songs / albums of the moment & play them in repeat. I love NBA basketball (go Jazz!). I go to as many home games as I can. I am an Events Manager for a healthcare data analytics company & I’ve worked at the company for 12 years.
I currently live with my best friend, her non-identical twin sons, and her former step-daughter. We have a full house! But with much love. My mom, sister, and brother-in-law live a couple hours away from me. And I’m looking for a new kidney to spend the next 25+ years with.
Right now, I still have the freedom of not being on dialysis but I do feel that is only for the very short term. I found this website because I have felt pretty alone in my feelings & fears & thoughts about what is happening to my body. I was seeking some support from someone who has experienced it too. And then I saw the option to post for living donors.
To those considering donating an organ, know that I would live every single day thinking & being grateful that I had this incredible gift from them. As I have for my first donor or the last almost 25 years. And that I still can’t really wrap my head around someone doing such a thing as being a living donor, but that it is truly the most wonderful gift of LIFE anyone could give.
I am looking for a donor with a blood type of B or O.
I look forward to the renewed freedom of health that a kidney transplant will provide. I hope to know my donor’s name (at least first name!) because I want to get another small kidney tattoo to honor this donor just as I did for my first donor.
Living donor transplants generally have better outcomes and can be arranged at a time convenient for both parties. No waiting and wondering while my body continues to weaken.
Thank you for taking your time to read and understand my current life situation, and we would appreciate you considering donating or spreading the word.
Thank you so much for your consideration!
