My name is Kristin Shelley, I am 26 years old I was diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy in 2007. I didn't know that from the time of my diagnosis in December 2007 to May 2010 , I would be on dialysis.I am writing this in hopes of my experience helping others understand the situation completely.This is not an easy journey. It is though the journey life has taken me on, as well as one you may have to take; and with every day I am stronger mentally and emotionally.
Well Uncle Jim has passed and he is my donor!!! I am so excited! Everyone is SO excited!!! We went over to Grandpas with Dom and desserts. Today was a great day and I am so grateful for this gift my uncle is giving me. Keep us in your thoughts. I love you all and thank you for all of your support! Uncle Jim you are giving me my life back and I don't know how to ever express to you how much I appreciate it. I love you... (The food pictures are for my sister Callie. When she was down here she documented everything even all the food so I had to do it for her.)
