As some of you may know, my mother, Nafiesa Hassan, was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease in 2011. She began hemodialysis this year and requires three tiring treatments a week. Her medical history is complicated with hypertension, asthma, hypothyroidism, osteoarthritis, anemia and gout. Nafiesa’s doctors from Massachusetts General Hospital have determined she needs a kidney transplant to stay alive and that she is a good candidate for the surgery.
