What makes me who I am....well that’s easy. I am a young grandma to three of the most wonderful grandkids in the world. My family is my reason to keep going. Yes it’s hard some days. Very hard but I have to keep going for them.

I also have three dogs that demand my attention for scratches and snuggles. I work very part time but just don’t have the energy to do any more then that. Dialysis is supposed to make me feel better but it really just sucks the life out of me literally then puts it back cleaner -- but forgets to add the energy.

If you think you can help me please reach out to me directly or contact Diane Dumont at the Ottawa Living Donor Program at (613)738-8400 ext 82513.
