I’ve been a Type 1 Diabetic since I was 11 years old. My daily life revolves around dialysis treatments seven days a week.
My children, ages 7 and 3, give me HOPE and are my reason to keep fighting. In addition to caring for my boys, I have a successful career at Procter & Gamble working in research and development. Sadly, I’ve had to reduce my hours and am on short-term disability due to my illness but look forward to resuming my job full time after I receive my new kidney.
A new kidney will give me more TIME with my boys. I want to take them on trips and make new memories. Ever since my diagnosis, I feel like I’ve been tip-toeing through my life. I want to feel a sense of normalcy. I want to be healthy and free of dialysis so that I can see my boys grow up, become teenagers, and pursue their dreams. I want to go back to being able to live freely.
