I’m 51 years old diagnosed with IgA nephropathy more than 20 years ago. I have an amazing daughter, a fulfilling job and I love to travel.
I’m about to start dialysis and it saddens me that I have to step away from doing the things I love. For a while now I’ve been feeling stuck with my condition and tired from the roller coaster of emotions, and so I also feel relieved that now I can make the choice to be unstuck and start my treatment.
I think every person who is dealing with chronic kidney disease has so much courage and hope. Every one deserves a chance to be given a boost in life and your gift of life will make this possible.
If you’d like to help, please reach out to me directly or to one of the TAP ambassadors.
