Cathy, age 50, is a fun-loving woman who loves the outdoors, gardening, and snow skiing, biking, and playing with her dogs, Boogie & Norman Jean and her 2 cats, Romeo & Juliet. Today, we are celebrating — Cathy received a successful kidney transplant at UC Davis Medical Center on June 13. 2011. She was the recipient of two pediatric kidneys!
It is truly a miracle that Cathy survived even this long; she was born with a renal tubular acidosis type 1 and was a very sick infant and toddler. During her teen years, her medical complications leveled off and she continued to improve and she was very athletic — having kidney disease never slowed her down. Over the years, Cathy battled chronic kidney infections and her kidneys developed stones (as the doctor put it “enough stones to pave his driveway”) and had multiple procedures to remove them. A procedure this past winter resulted in septic shock, and Cathy was hospitalized for six days.

Working at Nugget Market in Tiburon as the Cheese Dept. Manager and loving it! I’ve been there for almost one yr.
Nugget is a wonderful company to work for! My heath is great, as the Doctors call me “The Transplant Poster Child”
I still face financial challenges due to the high cost of the medications that I have to take for the rest of my life. I need to focus on more fund raising projects!!
