My name is Lesley. I am 39 years old and I live in Michigan with my boyfriend, Andy and my cat, Adrien. I have been living with chronic kidney disease and liver disease caused by genetics. Both of my parents are carriers for these conditions, but neither of them exhibited the diseases themselves. My brother also shares the same condition and has already received a transplant. Because of this, my family is unable to donate
I have had numerous complications over the years related to these conditions, including episodes of internal bleeding (that was scary!) and multiple surgeries and procedures. My goal is to find a living kidney donor so that I don’t have to spend as much time on dialysis.
