Transplant Type: Kidney
Daniela Dominguez-Garcia is a positive, kindhearted and loving person who is fighting for her life. A selfless woman who three short years after marrying her high school sweetheart, in 2019 she received the most devastating news, she was in the 5th and final stage of chronic kidney disease. Her need for a kidney transplant is urgent. Although she was placed on the transplant waiting list in October 2019, she has not been matched with an organ. Today, Daniela maintains her declining organ through daily in-home dialysis known as peritoneal which is a treatment for kidney failure that uses the lining of the abdomen to filter blood through the body. Peritoneal does not cure or treat the kidney. It only allows the body to function until a transplant is possible. Doctors say a kidney transplant is necessary for her survival.
During this difficult time, Daniela is blessed and grateful to have a loving and caring husband, the unwavering support of family and friends and the comfort and companionship of her two furry schnauzers Chibiusa and Luna-P. Despite her declining health, Daniela continues to exercise and is completing her Masters Degree at Angelo State University. She is looking forward to one-day starting a family of her own. Right now, Daniela needs your support.
The average cost of a kidney transplant is $414,000. Even with health insurance, which will cover a portion of the transplant costs, Daniela faces significant expenses related to the surgery. Not to mention, post-transplant medications are very expensive and are as critical to her survival as the transplant itself.

National Foundation for Transplants have been assisting transplant patients with advocacy and fundraising support for more than 37 years.
