Tuesdays with … January 4, 2015
Here’s your Tuesdays with…. update for those in need of a kidney transplant and their advocates. You could use the following information and email to family members, friends and post on your Facebook page and other social media outlets. You could also include additional information about your health, progress and other activities. If this is your first Tuesdays with… update, click here to learn how to use Tuesdays with… to expand on your Kidney Kampaign.
There are many resolutions and goals to be set for 2016. My main goal is to find my living kidney donor. I plan to talk to others about my situation and how a kidney from a living donor lasts about twice as along, 16 years verses 8 for a deceased donor. And the wait for a deceased donor is 5 to 10 years.
Could you help by letting others know about my situation? The more people advocating for me the more likely it is for someone to want to donate. Please send me an email saying that you’d like to advocate on my behalf and I’ll contact you so we could talk about how you can help.
Wishing you good health and happiness in the New Year.
I am very grateful for the continued support I’m receiving from family members and friends and will continue to keep you up to date on my progress.
You could also provide some info about your health, dialysis, your energy level, something you and your family are doing together or an experience you’ve had at the transplant hospital.
Can you suggest another way to let others know about your need? Please share it with us by Clicking Here and we will include in in a future Tuesdays With... update.
If you know someone else in need of a kidney transplant or would like to pass this on to your doctor or a dialysis/transplant social worker please provide him or her with this link:
Until next week, we wish you the best in your journey.
