Shamika Truesdale was born 36 years ago in Kannapolis, NC. She is the big sister to two siblings, and at the age of 18, she was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes. As the result of her diagnosis, Shamika has been faced with numerous complications such as high blood pressure, Gastroparesis, and Myositis, resulting in inflammation of her skeletal muscles. Less than 3 years ago, she battled a blood disorder called Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP). The treatments involved mild chemotherapy, many plasma infusions, blood transfusions and the removal of her spleen. Over the past 9 years, Shamika has been hospitalized more than 100 times.

Since receiving a diagnosis of renal failure a little over a 6 years ago, Shamika has been doing hemodialysis three days a week. Her doctors informed her that a kidney/pancreas transplant was her only way to insure a long and healthy life. After undergoing the necessary transplant evaluations at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital and Carolinas Medical Center, it was determined that Shamika was a good candidate for a transplant. Through it all, Shamika remains steadfast and strong in her faith that God has her back.
Family and friends of Shamika Truesdale are raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation.

Hi Shamika, Just wanted to send a little love, encouragement, and support your way today. Never give up, never give in! I wouldn't take ANYTHING for my journey. It is those trials and tribulations that have made me the strong woman that I am today. I only tell you that to let you know that God will never leave or forsake you. Be encouraged...He is still in control. God bless you on your journey. God loves you, and I do too.
