Team Winn - Fighting Against PKD
To meet Chinwe you would never know the struggles she is facing. She has the biggest and brightest smile I have ever seen. What a strong, amazing mother she is to her children and she hopes this can help her continue to be that mother to them. PLEASE share her story and help her find her life saving match.
My name is Chinwe Winn and I am a single mother of two. I recently found out that my kidney function has declined to 20% due to Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) _ a hereditary disease that my mom lost her battle with in 2009. My mom was on dialysis while waiting for a donor but didn't get an opportunity to receive her transplant because complications from dialysis rendered her too weak to undergo transplant. I have sole responsibility for my children, so losing this battle is not an option. PKD will not Win!
Please consider taking the steps to being my donor. My blood type is A+. This means that someone with an A or O blood type could be a match. Also, my transplant center participates in the paired exchange program. This allows for anyone regardless of blood type to donate. They would donate to someone else in exchange for a match for me. If you or anyone you know is interested in being a donor, please email me at [email protected] or contact Barbara O'Neal, Piedmont Transplant at (404) 605-4128. Thank you for your support!
Team Winn Will Win the Fight Against PKD!
