Special Thanks

Update: I received a kidney from a deceased donor on Friday October 13, 2023. I am eternally grateful for that person’s sacrifice and ultimate gift. 

Many thanks to my husband, son, daughter-in-law, brother, nephew, parents, and friends who have supported me unconditionally with love and light through this roller coaster ride of a journey called kidney disease. Whether you are in person, far away, or through social media, your words of encouragement have touched my soul, helped me through difficult times, and kept me going.


Special thanks to those who have helped me get to and from doctors appointments and dialysis, and to those who have helped me with my daily needs. Lance, James, Olivia, Daddy, and Alicia.


Thank you to Erica and her family for being my solid support system in Portland and for always having my back. 


Thank you to Edward for being my spiritual sounding board.


Thank you Kerri. Even though you did not end up being my donor, my kidney angel, you are forever my Kidney Sister. 


Thank you to everyone who has taken the Health Assessment Survey to see if you could donate to me. You have no idea how much that means to me. 


And special thanks to Ruby Atwood at Transformation Sync for her time and effort in helping me put this website together. 


With much gratitude, appreciation, and love.
