Winston Wilson is only 59 years-old and he is suffering from end-stage-renal-disease or kidney failure. Winston was born with a condition of his kidneys known as polycystic kidney disease, or PKD. PKD is an inherited disorder in which clusters of cysts develop within the kidneys, and can grow very large. The disease causes a variety of serious complications, including high blood pressure and kidney failure. Over the years, Winston’s condition has progressed, and he now needs a lifesaving kidney transplant. Without a kidney transplant, his kidneys will continue to fail and Winston’s time will quickly run out.
Winston is a native of Hartford Connecticut, and a 1976 graduate of the Loomis Chaffee preparatory school. He now lives in Columbia, South Carolina. He has been married to his loving and supportive wife of fourteen years, Audrey Keith-Wilson. Winston enjoys cooking, grilling and entertaining family and friends. His hobbies include keeping computers running at optimum processing speeds, landscaping and gardening.
