I am prepared for a Kidney Transplant
I am sixty years old and quality of life is very important to me. My awareness of the Kidney Foundation has been brief since I was only diagnosed with kidney failure in August of 2007. I’ve had diabetes and high blood pressure my whole life, I’ve had a partial amputation of my left foot and a bout with bone cancer which left me with metal pins in my hip. But waking up in the hospital and being told that I had complete kidney failure was extremely challenging to me. The people I’ve been exposed to in dialysis treatment have been phenomenal; the doctors, the staff, the nurses are marvelous. They are my family now since my husband moved into a nursing home because of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. I will be meeting with a transplant surgeon the end of April to prepare myself for kidney transplant surgery. What depth of gratitude can I express to the National Kidney Foundation of Utah for the financial help to help pay for my needs. Thank you for the continuous work of miracles you perform daily. Most Sincerely, B. Conley
