MAY 2018 – I am grateful to report that I received a kidney transplant on January 8, 2018. I received a deceased donor kidney and I still pray for my donor’s family often even though I do not know who they are. My mom passed away in March, so I understand the loss they must feel daily. So far, my new kidney and I are getting along well and I’m feeling much better!
NOVEMBER 2017 – I’m Wendy Watkins Boggs and I have recently been diagnosed with end stage renal disease (ESRD). Due to a genetic flaw in my family tree, five out of seven siblings in my mother’s family have been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and I have also inherited this condition. My kidneys have deteriorated to a point where my only treatment options are limited to either dialysis multiple times a week or a kidney transplant for survival.
