A kidney for Nicole
Organized by: Nicole Hull
Hello, my name is nicole hull. I'm 29 years young and this is my story. In the last 4 years i have facde more health tragedies than most people face in their entire life time. I was born with primary lymphedema which is a chronic swelling condition that landed me in the hospital for 6 consecutive months in 2012. Several rehabilitation centers and 7 months in a nurseing facility. Since then my spleen died. Had a bowl rupture of the lower intestines, appendix erupted, diagnosed with Lupus, and FSGS, and host of infections including fasciitis Pseudomonas cellulitis ecoli and a liver infection I'm not sure how to pronounce. My most recient diagnosis... Kidney failure. Out of everything i have been through this is the hardest for me. I am so greatful to still be alive. My dr told me i need a kidney transplant to stay alive and live a long healthy life but the waiting list for a kidney is 8-10 years in the state of california. I have put my family through so much with my health already i just couldnt ask them to sacrifice a kidney thats just to much. So i want to raise enough money to relocate to another state wgere the waiting list would be 1-4years or raise enough money to pay someone to donate a kidney and avoid the waiting list all together. Would you be so kind in helping me through this journey to find a kidney. I appreciate all of your help and support. With all my heart thank you.
