Michelle Needs Your Help With Kidney Transplant Expenses

Michelle Radin 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, overnight dialysis treatments at home. One year later, in October of 2010, she received a kidney transplant, but learned only days after the transplant that the disease had returned in the new kidney. The disease didn’t let up and two years later, the new kidney completely failed, putting her back on dialysis, now three times a week in a clinic. She is hoping to have another transplant, but it is uncertain how long she will have to wait for that day. She looks forward to getting back to her life and work as it was before.
