Michelle Needs Your Help With Expenses Related to Dialysis and Eventual Transplant.

Michelle first discovered she had a serious kidney disease called FSGS in March of 2007. She was in and out of the hospital countless times the first few years, and had to close her private practice as a Marriage and Family Therapist. In September of 2009, she began seven-day-a-week dialysis treatments at home.

I have an update of the best kind. On July 15, 2023, after 11 and1/2 years on dialysis, I had a successful kidney transplant--against all odds! I was told there was only a 20% chance that my second attempt at a transplant would be successful, without recurrence of the original disease. As I approach my one year anniversary, it's looking better and better. One is never out of the woods with a transplant, but this milestone portends likely continuation of healthy kidney function. I couldn't be more grateful for this miracle of healing and for all of you who have helped me along the way.
