Help me get a new kidney and pancreas!!
My name is Renee and I’m in need of a kidney/pancreas transplant. My story began when I was just 9 years old, that’s when I found out I had Type 1 diabetes. I’ve now had this horrible disease for almost 32 years and it has taken its toll on my body. My life long battle with this disease and its severe complications have come to a critical point. I celebrated my 40th birthday in the hospital at which point my kidneys failed. I started hemodialysis, a form of treatment for end stage renal disease. Treatment is extremely tiring and demanding. I receive dialysis 3 days a week, each session is 4 hours long where I’m hooked up to a machine that keeps me alive!
