Diane Rogers, a loving and devoted school teacher for over 35 years, wants nothing more than to see her six- year-old granddaughter grow up and graduate from high school. But she has suffered serious complications from diabetes mellitus, a life-long, debilitating and incurable disease that can cause organ failure.
Unfortunately, Diane knows the downside of diabetes all too well. After a successful living donor kidney transplant in 2003, Diane’s kidneys have once again been ravaged by her diabetes. She now undergoes a strict regimen of dialysis over three times a week. Fatigue, lack of energy, poor eyesight, and time consuming medical treatments are only the beginning of her very difficult days. Diane’s only real chance to extend her life and to enjoy her family is to once again undergo a lifesaving kidney transplant.
