Help This Iowa Woman Seeking Kidney Transplant
You could be a match for this Iowa woman and bring her a gift that keeps on giving.
Morgan was diagnosed in 2002 with a rare kidney disease, which she ended up needing a kidney transplant for. Thankfully, her Dad was able to donate his and she underwent her first kidney transplant. However, 14 years later now, that transplants is starting to fail.
According to KalonaNews.com,
According to the paper “while finding willing donors is a major hurdle, it is made even more complicated by the fact that additional antibodies were created with the first transplant, decreasing the chances of finding a matching kidney that her body’s defense system won’t attack. Antibodies are the main defense against foreign invaders that can lead to illness, but they will also attack foreign tissues such as a transplanted kidney.” "
