Just shy of three weeks ago, Anita was told her kidneys were no longer functioning and she would need dialysis and a kidney transplant. The whirlwind then began! The next two weeks have been filled with meetings, education, tests and tough decisions. The fight is just beginning!
You may know Anita from many roles she plays. She grew up in King but left for Texas for a few years and returned to King around ten years ago. She is Mom to Justin and Amanda and you might find her cheering for either of them! Most recently this consists of traveling to horse shows and hanging around the barn with Amanda. She has also been a frequent at exercise and cycling classes at the Stokes YMCA. When not enjoying these things, she is leading her team at A. Quarles CPA.
The last several years have been extremely challenging for Anita. In 2014, she lost her husband to the flu, followed by the sudden passing of her father and the cancer diagnosis for her mother. Through it all, she has kept her unwavering faith in God and his promise!
At only 51, doctors have told Anita that if she is not a perfect candidate for a transplant, no one is. Now we have to find a match!!
Please join me in all ways you can. First of all, PRAY! If you feel so inclined, we would love to have you join the transplant program to see if you are a match. You can designate Anita as the recipient or find out if you could save other lives. Do not disqualify yourself due to health conditions and you may remain anonymous! NO ONE will know your identity or health information unless that is your wish. The test for kidney donation is a simple blood test. If you would like information about how to be tested, please reach out to me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, please PRAY! Anita is strong, and although the journey will be tough, she will persevere! God is good!
