Make a Difference in Pattiâ€™s Life
As many of you know Patti had a heart transplant in 2003 and is doing well with the new heart, but the anti-rejection medications she takes has destroyed the kidney she has. Last August, Patti had a tube placed to start peritoneal dialysis and nearly died when she got an infection from the tube. To treat the infection, she was forced to start hemodialysis. Since then, Patti has been on dialysis three times a week and is in the last stages of renal disease. The longer Patti is on dialysis, the harder it is on her heart. She needs a kidney transplant as soon as possible.
