Lapeer County Correction Deputy in need of kidney donor

KIDNEY UPDATE! LONG READ.. PLEASE SHARE Hello facebook world; it;'s time to do a kidney update. To recap, back in September of 2016, I was diagnosed with IgA nephropathy. IgA is a kidney disease that occurs when an antibody called immunoglobulin A (IgA) lodges in the kidneys. This results in local inflammation that, over time, hampers the kidneys ability to filter wastes from the blood. Since September of 2016 I have been on and off several different medications in hopes to control and slow down the progression of the disease; unfortunately none have worked and the disease continues to worsen. The different drugs did nothing but reek havoc on my life causing horrible side affects on the inside and outside of my body. One even landed me in the hospital for four days. None-the-less, I continue to stay positive with the amazing support from my family and friends.

June of 2017 I met with the Henry Ford Transplant Team and had my case discussed with the transplant committee board. I am currently on the transplant waiting list, but the average wait time is five years. There is currently over 2600 individuals in Michigan alone waiting for a kidney. Do to my age (26), they strongly recommend me to try and find a living donor. A living donor kidney lasts substantial longer than a deceased donor. I recently had my one year follow up with Henry Ford in September of 2018. They thought they had a match, but unfortunately it fell through. My toxins are getting too high in my blood therefore I will need to start dialysis in the very near future. My current filtering rate is roughly 15%. My kidneys are to the point where they cant filter out the toxins and need assistance. That is what the dialysis will do. Therefore, I am reaching out to anyone once again in the hopes to find a donor. I know this is a lot to ask, there are risks, but if you are interested or know someone that may be please share. The website to sign up is www.HenryFordlivingDonor.org. You'll need my first and last name, as well as, my birthdate. If you would like to sign up or have any questions please contact me.

I just wanted to wish you the best of luck. I waited 3 years in NY before I finally received a kidney in June. I was on dialysis 3X a week the entire time I was waiting. Unfortunately there aren’t that many volunteer donors, and we need to educate people about the benefits of organ donation. My kidney came from a donor in California and the hospital got both his kidneys. Stay strong, you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

As a transplant patient myself, with the same kidney disease, all I can do is offer my thoughts and prayers for you to find a living donor. My first transplant cost my career in law enforcement. I've had two transplants, so I definitely understand your battle. Best of luck.
