Anyone who knows me knows how passionate I am about organ and tissue donation. I am the recipient of a corneal transplant which enhanced my life. I write about it here Windows of the Soul.
When a kidney doesn’t work properly there are two options that a person has, dialysis or kidney transplant. Right now there are over 80,000 people on the kidney transplant waiting list and the wait is usually more than 5 years.
Please consider becoming an organ and tissue donor.
Today I am speaking to the creator of the Facebook group, Kidney Failure And Dialysis Support Group.
Please welcome Leah Allen
My name is Leah Allen I am 48 and I have the end of life kidney failure for three years now I am a mother of three sons and I have five grandchildren they are the reason I fight to stay alive
Please tell the readers a little about the group.
The reason I started the group is so that other people going through the same issue can have some extra support from others that know what it’s like to have this disease and not feel alone.
What inspired you to create this group?
I started the group because I felt alone and felt like nobody could really understand what I was truly going through.
What would you like this group to accomplish?
I would like for my members to get the support and information that they need. I want them to all feel like they have friends they can talk to.
Thank you Leah for taking the time to tell us about this important group.
