Tuesdays with … March 9, 2015
Here’s your Tuesdays with…. update for those in need of a kidney transplant and their advocates. It is a short one this week. 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.
Did you know that there are people who are donating a kidney even though they don’t know anyone who needs a kidney transplant? And one person’s generosity can help many people.
They refer to these angels as a non-directed donors. (NDD) These NDDs are called dominos, because they start a process where many others get a transplant. One of these domino paired exchanges resulted in 30 people getting transplanted. Click here to read how domino paired exchanges work.
I’m looking for one person who can donate to me even if this person isn’t compatible, we could get involved in one of these paired exchanges.
This past week there was a 6 way paired exchange that all took place at one transplant hospital in San Francisco.
I would appreciate it if you would share my story with others with the hope that a donor can assist even if we are not compatible.
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.
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.
