Hello, I’m Ginger. I am a wife and stay at home mom of 5. My children age from 19 down to 5. The youngest is at home with me.
I was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease when I was 21 and the kidney function has slowly decreased over the years. In January 2019, I was added to the transplant list. I will be 43 this year and hope to receive a kidney soon and get back the life I had before the recent decreasing function of the kidneys started robbing me of my life activities.
As a family, we enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, four-wheeling, biking, and most anything involving the outdoors. Our family motto is “work together, play together” and that is what we do.
In my spare time, I enjoy photography, plants, and studying the bible. On Thursday mornings, I teach bible out of my home.
My family has been wonderful in understanding and helping me out during all this. Recently the extreme fatigue has dictated my days and the family has pitched in and helped where its needed. I will be starting dialysis soon so hopefully that will help.
My prayer is that you consider me for donation so I can be the wife, mother, and family member I desire to be.
My blood type is A and my transplant will take place in Hamot UPMC.
Thank you for taking time read my profile.
