Hi, I’m Tammy and just like many people, I need a kidney transplant. Now, I am in stage 4 of Chronic Kidney Disease.

My kidney journey began when I was 21 years old. I had what is known as focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. I was very fortunate to have my mom donate her kidney and it lasted 20 years. When it failed, my sister donated her kidney 10 years ago but it is currently failing. I have not had to go on dialysis. Getting a new kidney would allow me to have more energy to go on walks, read without falling asleep, and more, just the regular day-to-day stuff that we take for granted until we are unable to do them.

Please consider giving the gift of life. The gratitude that I would have cannot be described in words. Thank you
