Tuesdays with … July 13, 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.

Determination, as described by Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, is:

  • a quality that makes you continue trying to do or achieve something that is difficult
  • the act of finding out or calculating something
  • the act of officially deciding something

I am determined to find a kidney donor for myself. Many people ask me who can be a living donor. In general, to be a living donor an individual must be physically fit, in good health, free from high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, kidney disease and heart disease. Individuals considered for living donation are usually between 18-60 years of age. Also, living donors older than 65 years of age have successfully donated to those in need of a donor.

You can read more information about becoming a kidney donor on Living Kidney Donors Network’s website by clicking here. With my determination and my request to have you share my story with your network, my kidney donor will be as determined as me.

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.
