This is Tequiesha Cooper! I got to meet her and her amazing family today and learn about her struggle to find a kidney donor. This beautiful girl has down syndrome and such a sweet attitude! She couldnt wait to meet my girls and did her best to smile even though she is not feeling very good and was having leg pain and issues with her swollen feet. The longer she waits on her kidney the more health problems she will face. Tequiesha has faced every obstacle and managed to surpass every expectation! PLEASE give her the gift of a NEW, HEALTHY life!
Here is her story...
