Receiving a transplant is like a second chance at life. Keeping the healthy eating to fresh everything and low sodium is one thing I took away from my dialysis diet. Now I’m out more going places, walking, exploring when I am able to. It’s my chance to live my life.
I don't take my health for granted. Not that I did before, but everything feels more like an opportunity to better myself both emotionally and physically. Someone gave me another chance to live the life I want.
Once I started putting my health first and began advocating for my own health, I realized that I could help others who were dealing with the same issues. I am now a full time health care advocate, and I honor my donor and his family by championing kidney disease awareness and prevention every day.
