Thanks to Kidney Kars I can go to College

My name is Brooke.  I received a scholarship from the Kidney Foundation so I can become an Occupational Therapist Assistant.  I received this scholarship because, 3 1/2 years ago I received a kidney transplant. When I was 10 I as diagnosed with level 3 reflux. They tried to fix the problem surgically, but the scarring and the damage was irreversible.  Four years later, my mother was able to give me her kidney.  It was a rough experience, but I felt so much better after the transplant.  I had become so sick over those 4 years, I did not realize how bad I felt, until I felt good again– thanks to the Kidney Transplant.  I am so thankful to the Kidney Foundation for this scholarship.  Thank you for all the Kidney Kars donations, thank you to the corporations and individuals who are willing to look after those of us who have had some difficulties in their life.  The Kidney Foundation is helping me acheive a career– one that will support me and allow me to help others in pain.  I express complete appreciation to the donors and to the National Kidney Foundation of Utah & Idaho.   Sincerely,  Brooke R.
