Welcome to my CaringBridge website. The purpose of this site is to keep family, friends, and interested people updated during my search for a living kidney donor and transplant.  I appreciate your prayers, support, and sharing my need on social media.  Thank you for visiting!

IF YOU DECIDE TO BE TESTED  AS A POTENTIAL DONOR MY INSURANCE WILL REIMBURSE YOUR TRAVEL, LODGING, AND FOOD FOR THE EVALUATION AND SURGERY.  UNFORTUNATELY YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE EVALUATED ANONYMOUSLY BECAUSE I NEED TO KNOW YOU ARE BEING EVALUATED BEFORE YOU TRAVEL TO THE MAYO CLINIC SO THE  NECESSARY INSURANCE PAPERWORK CAN BE COMPLETED. PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR DETAILS.


I am a daughter, sister, aunt, mother, and wife with PKD (polycystic kidney disease), a genetic disorder that has caused my kidneys to fail. I am on the deceased donor waitlist (with  over 100,000 others needing a kidney in the USA), but my best option for a successful outcome is to have a transplant from a living donor before needing dialysis.  All my family members have PKD, have already donated, or have health issues that do not allow them to be a donor. Mayo has accepted me as a transplant candidate  which leads me to what the kidney community refers to as "The Big Ask."


Would you consider being a kidney donor? While any healthy person can safely donate a kidney, I know it's not for everyone. For one who can, it's a selfless, life saving act. Because I'm enrolled in a paired kidney exchange program, a kidney donated on my behalf doesn't have to be a match for me.


It would mean so much if you would take the time to learn something new and consider how you might be able to help. If donating a kidney is not for you, I would appreciate if you would help me to spread the word. 

With Gratitude,

Lynn
