How are you? My name is Dan, Im 30 years old from Bristol, England. I hope you dont mind, but I am looking to increase the awareness of renal failure and what is required with regards to kidney dialysis. I had a previous transplant attempt last year from my father but unfortunately failed, and now I have developed antibodies against my mother so I need desensitisation therapy first.
I was recently rejected for making a disability claim from my local council offices in the UK and I think this is wrong and that more renal patients should be given better access to help when required so I have set up a petition website at:
Its free to sign up and you will be helping potentially hundreds if not thousands in the UK with recognition. I am approaching people with kidney failure or who have come through the other side, as Im sure you will understand the difficulties experienced first hand.'
I live in the Frankford section of Phila, but love to go down town and to Penn's landing,
I am healthy and here for a friend, to give her surrport.
I do understand what You are going thought, I had a Family member that was on kidney dialysis, He recieved a kidney now , about 1 year and is doing well.
I keep You in my prayers that You recieve a new kidney. Wishing You a Good Day my Friend ~ Hugs, Peggy
p.s. I will join the Three Rivers Club, I like that show alot.
I had an acute abdomen. Intestines died. Once on TPN, other organs began to fail. Eventually needed six organs. Prior to the transplant I was a professional educator for nearly 20 years. My illness/transplant forced me into retirement disability, but I like to think of myself a "differently-abled":-) I miss my passion, my career, but I am blessed with a grandson -almost 9, a grandson -almost 4, and a granddaughter -almost 3. My grandson kept me going. My second grandson was born while I was awaiting a transplant in Miami. My granddaughter was born after I was home for good. I spent over a year in and out of hospitals. I try not to look back -only forwards. I awaken each day -work out the kinds -and try to be a positive role model for others -to be a blessing in others' lives. I am so grateful to have a wonderful husband who was my care taker when I was ill, loving an supportive parents, a best friend and daughter, her significant other, and my three grandchildren. Grands are so GRAND!

I just celebrated my 40th Anniversary, post transplant last Sunday! These days it's more common for a live-related donor but still pretty darn good for a cadaveric transplant, especially considering when I got the transplant I was told it would last about 8 years, 15 at best!! Thanking God for the era I was born in and His grace and mercy on me. My mother was a WWII nurse and people with kidney failure just died back then. I am feeling great, I'm doing my bookkeeping work and working with the homeless and needy in the church, Bollywood Dancing and everything else I love. The performance season will start for me next month- so excited!! Tonight I'm going to a special dinner out with my husband to celebrate my 40th. Still with every year that passes, I wonder about the donor and how I could find out who he or she was.... See More
