Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.

I have Polycystic Kidney Disease which is finally causing me to need a kidney transplant in the next 3-6 months.  The waiting list is 7-10 years in the SF Area and no one from my family is able to donate, so I have decided to look for a non-related donor so I don't have to go on dialysis.

If you want to read up on donating, you can find a booklet that explains the process and the procedure at
https://stanfordhealthcare.org/medical-treatments/k/kidney-transplant-surgery/kidney-donation.html

If you are willing to be a potential donor, you can begin the evaluation process by visiting https://www.stanfordhealthcarelivedonors.org/approach/?service=shc.transplant.kidney:donor.prereq.1#__ or by contacting Stanford’s living donor coordinator at 650.498.8382. I'm listed under Roberta Turner, DOB 11/09/56. 

My family and I will be updating this site to let everyone know my progress in finding a donor and during the transplant process. We  appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
