My husband's kidneys failed at the age of 28. He waited 5 years for a donor kidney. It was one of the greatest blessings we ever received. Unfortunately, his donor kidney stopped functioning last year and once again he is waiting for another donor kidney. Dialysis is the only option available until he is listed and a kidney becomes available. Being a donor offers hope of a better life to so many people waiting and praying for a blessing.
