I received a second chance at life...
My life was full. I was married with a son in elementary school. I was a busy wife and mother. However, In October 2007, my world was turned upside down. When I was put on emergency dialysis, my kidney function had decreased to critical levels. I was on dialysis for 5 years and 9 months. However, at around the 5th year mark of dialysis, I was informed that I would not only need a kidney, but a liver as well, due to unforeseen circumstances. Because of my faith in God, I wrote on the care pages website “Dos Regalos”, (which means two gifts in Spanish).
In June 2013, through the generous act of a donor family, I received a second chance at life. I thank God that He still performs miracles today. Please consider registering for organ donation.
