Hello, my name is Jenn.  I am a 41 years old.  I have 3 of my own children, and I am engaged to a wonderful man who has two children.   I was born with Autosomal  Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease  otherwise known as ADPKD or just PKD.  PKD is one of the most life-threatening genetic diseases for which there is no cure. In ADPKD fluid filled cysts develop and enlarge both kidneys eventually leading to kidney failure.   I am currently living with 15% kidney function (a normal kidney is 90%& above).  This means that I am in need of a kidney transplant as soon as possible.  I am looking for donors to get tested to find a match.   A match is made based on blood type and tissue type.  I am an A+, therefore I am able to accept a donor with A+/A-/O+/O- blood type.   Please share this website with as many people as you can and get the word out.    If you're interested in getting tested to be a donor please contact me for more information or go to . Once you are on the website choose the ARIZONA Mayo hospital. You will enter my full name JENNIFER PURVIS and the Date of Birth is 6/20/1978. Once you fill out the health history in a few days you will receive an email from Mayo that says "Hello, At this time, your intended recipient has not been approved for donors to be evaluated. Once we have approval from the recipients team, we will contact you directly." Do NOT be alarmed if you receive this. I have not yet had MY pre-OP (that is in October- more about that in the journal entries). Once MY pre-OP is complete YOU will be contacted by Mayo for the next steps. If you have ANY questions please contact me asap. xoxo jenn
