My Story

Back in 2011 lupus nephritis stopped my kidney function. April 7, 2024 I made 8 years post kidney transplant! I was a part of an 8 people living donors kidney swap in Alabama. My mom gave her kidney so that I could receive one. I am so grateful to have received the gift of life from Nick to improve mine. I am a lupus advocate, kidney failure advocate, a former dialysis tech and now working a dialysis educator/coordinator and I enjoy my life/job to the fullest!
