I cant wait to get a new kidney and pancreas (albeit used I suppose) and see what the rest of my life has in store for me!
I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 2. By the time I was 18, my kidneys had begun failing. I finally reached dialyses at the age of 28. Blessed with a 4 year old child, getting ready to be married to the most remarkable man, Scott. There’s so much to my story, such as losing my father unexpectedly when I was 18, or a car wreck that left me with chronic back pain. But through it all, my Faith has persevered, and I have truly been blessed. For all my trials, I am supported by a loving family and wonderful friends.

We got married! Scott and I got married in my front yard on April 28th, 2019. It was a very small, intimate ceremony. The only people present were my siblings and my mother. We sadly missed having Scott’s mother and sister, however we are currently planning a larger reception to enjoy with everyone.
I am currently active on the waiting list.
Because of the generosity of several people (Thank you SO MUCH!), I was able to purchase a brand new Medtronic insulin pump! It’s so wonderful.
However, it is capable of SO MUCH MORE. But I need another $1600 in order to afford the Continuous Glucose Monitor that pairs with my specific pump. I know God will provide, but if you want to help the process along, I need about $1000.
Again, thank you so much to those of you who have contributed thus far. Shout out to my dad’s Merck family – I know y’all stepped in and contributed the majority of what I needed. I am forever grateful to you for that.
So until my transplant, I will revel in the blessings that my Creator has given me. I will stand on His word, and I can’t wait to see what things He has in store for my family.
Love to all,
