You Can Help Make a Difference
Hi my name is Erika. I am working on getting a kidney and pancreas transplant. I am a type 1 diabetic. Because it took doctors a long time to figure out that I am type 1 and not type 2, I was on the wrong medications. The medications they had me on for type 2 diabetes took a toll on my kidneys. I am currently on dialysis.

Hi I just wanted to update my page. August 26 2020. I got my kidney. I am still working to get a pancreas. I never was able to lose enough weight for the pancreas.
My kidney started working immediately. I no longer have to do dialysis.
I have learned you can do what you set out to do. Even if it is hard.

It took a while before drs realized I was a type 1 so the meds for type 2 took a toll on my kidneys
I enjoy being around people, reading walking, video games and helping others out when I can
