I had the priveldge of meeting Terrance and his family today before I made the Stone Mountain climb and I wish I had more time to talk to him! He was such an incredibly sweet guy and I am so excited to be able to help him get his need out there! PLEASE SHARE HIS STORY!
This is his story in his words.
As most of you know , I have a kidney disease that is causing my kidneys to fail. I was diagnosed with kidney failure June 3 and I am currently on dialysis. My doctor has recently sent me to Emory Transplant Center to be worked up for a kidney transplant. The first step on this journey was to get educated on the good of getting a kidney transplant. I have learned that my best option would be to get a kidney from a living donor. My doctors at Emory have told me to share my situation with family and friends to see if anyone would be willing to give me a kidney. I've also learned that today over 1,700 men, women, and children in Georgia need a kidney transplant. Usually they have to wait on the national list for at least 2-4 years to get a kidney transplant. However if a living person is willing to give me a kidney, the wait would be much shorter and the kidney would most likely last longer than one from a deceased donor. Also after the transplant, I will have to take lots of medicine for the remainder of my life to keep the kidney working and the medicine is very expensive. With this being said, if you are willing to give me a kidney, call 855-366-7989. Any donations are welcome too.
