Nelda & Jesus
Nelda was diagnosed with kidney disease at the age of 14. At the age of 21 her kidneys were only working at 5% of their capacity and she had to begin dialysis. After three years in dialysis, she received her first kidney transplant. Twelve years have passed and she now needs another kidney transplant.

It has been a while since I have come to my page because I was thankfully on Social Security and Medicare. My out of pocket expenses had been bearable. Unfortunately, Social Security has said I am no longer disabled according to their policies.
I will no longer receive Social Security or Medicare.
My last check up turned out elevated creatinine levels and a kidney biopsy was ordered. I was at borderline rejection. I received IV therapy to reverse the rejection.
My husband had to miss almost 2 weeks of work to take care of me and his line of work does not offer paid days off. I am now turning back to fundraising to help with our financial burden.
Thank you all for your kindness and God Bless You!

WE HAD OUR TRANSPLANT AND DONOR SURGERIES ON DECEMBER 6, 2012 AT UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS HEALTH SCIENCE CENTER SAN ANTONIO. MY HUSBAND WAS THE DONOR AND THE KIDNEY WORKING GREAT. MY CREATININE IS AT 0.9 AND I AM FEELING GREAT. I GOT MY APPETITE BACK. I AM SO HAPPY AND CAN’T WAIT TO START WORKING. I HAVE DECIDED THAT I WANT TO WORK IN THE FIELD OF ORGAN AND TISSUE DONATION AND TRANSPLANTATION. MY HUSBAND IS ALSO DOING GREAT. HE WAS TOLD HE WOULD BE IN GREATER PAIN THAN ME, BUT IT WAS NOT THAY WAY. HE IS DOING WONDERFUL. I WILL CONTINUE TO POST UPDATES AND HOPEFULLY SOON WILL HAVE EVEN GREATER NEWS ABOUT STARTING A FAMILY.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED US IN MAKING THIS GREAT MIRACLE TAKE PLACE.
GOD BLESS YOU EVERYONE !!
