Kelly Tweiten A Kidney for Kelly

First post: Jul 27, 2018 Latest post: Oct 30, 2018
Kelly has suffered for years from a congenital kidney disorder known as Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis.  It was essentially discovered with the premature birth of her son 11 years ago.  She watched her kidney function gradually decline until the need for dialysis arose in 2015 at the age of 34.  She and her family continually hope and pray for a kidney transplant that may normalize life for her.  She currently is unable to work and attends dialysis every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday which leaves her physically drained despite her best efforts to maintain the energy to care for her young son, new husband, and three dogs.
