Tuesdays with … July 25, 2016
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.
The kidney transplant community is constantly looking for ways to increase the number of donors. Here’s a unique way of increasing the number of living kidney donors.
Some people will not donate a kidney because they are concerned that a future family member will need one. This is a creative way to overcome that concern, give a “gift certificate” to a donor that a family member could use in the future if they need a kidney transplant.
I think you’ll agree that this is a creative idea.
These are real truths for those in need of a kidney transplant. Making the above 2 points part of your story could provide more urgency to your situation and the importance of finding a living donor.
You could provide the link to the article: http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/hiv-positive-kidney-donors-helping-save-lives-article-1.2703166
(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.)
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.
