Hi! My name is Shreya, I am 26 years old and I live in Alberta. I have had IGA Nephropathy since 2016 which was managed fine until I got Covid-19 in 2020 working as a nurse. Kidney failure came on suddenly after getting sick from Covid-19. Due to this, I have had to quit my job as a nurse. At the time I was working as an LPN and studying to get my RN degree. I have also had to quit studying due to fatigue and the uncertainty of transplantation. I am currently doing home dialysis.
My mother had offered to donate but was rejected due to personal health reasons.
I enjoyed working as a nurse a lot and hope to one day resume my role in the health care department and also resume my studies. I want to be able to travel freely and regain my energy, appetite and freedom.
I am coming forth on this platform in hopes that there might be someone willing to donate and help.
Blood Type: B+
Currently in active transplant status looking for a donor.
Reason for kidney failure: CKD since 2016 but kidney disease worsened due to covid-19
Current kidney function: On peritoneal dialysis
