Road to Transplant – 2017
Hi, my name is Leo De La Mora. I’m a son, parent, separated husband, older brother, and pet owner. I live with kidney disease, but am grateful to be an otherwise healthy man. Growing up I was a healthy kid, very well taken care of. When I first realized that I was sick, it was a great surprise. I was getting a haircut after getting off work. I was on my kid brother’s barber chair and kept dozing off until I was done. Then while I was sitting waiting to grab lunch with him, I collapsed. It was then that my journey began.
