About Me: Please use this space to tell the community about you and your unique experience with transplantation:
Well, I'm 32 years old. I was diagnose with Lupus when I was 15 years old; a year after I was diagnose with kidney failure. I was on Dialysis for four years and received my first kidney transplant when I was 20years old. And thanks to the unknown donor I was able to live a normal and happy life for 10yrs. And thanks to the "GIFT OF LIFE"- I was able to "GIVE LIFE" to my baby twins (Isabella and Giovanni). First kidney lasted 10 yrs and now after 2 yrs of dialysis I recieved a second tx in aug 23th 2011.
