THE STORY:

What were you doing when you were 25 years old? If you're not that age yet, what do you hope to accomplish by 25? College degree(s)? A stable full-time job? Marriage? Kids? Own a home? I bet end stage kidney failure isn't on that list of things to accomplish by 25. Tracy is 25 and has been diagnosed with end stage kidney failure. She will need a transplant in order to continue to live a full and successful life. December 2015: Tracy is home for Christmas with her family enjoying spending time with them but is ill with an upper respiratory infection. After a couple of days of being under the weather she goes to see a doctor at urgent care, who diagnoses her with bronchitis. She travels back to Washington D.C. (where she resides) and continues to rest in hopes of recovering before the New Year. January 2016: Tracy's condition has worsened to the point of her not being able to breathe. After much convincing from her Aunt, Tracy agrees to go to the emergency room. After starting to treat her for breathing problems associated with pneumonia, doctors rush into her room with her blood test results. Her kidneys have started to rapidly deteriorate, which has resulted in complete failure, the treatment for this is immediate kidney dialysis. The process for dialysis includes the patient lying flat. Since there was fluid surrounding her lungs (a byproduct of kidney failure) she was unable to lay flat without being sedated. After consent was given, the doctors sedate and intubate Tracy for a little over 48 hours in order to allow for dialysis in addition to helping her body recover. Biopsies are taken of her kidneys and sent to the Mayo Clinic. The Mayo Clinic finds that 18 out of 20 filtration units within her kidney are clogged. The nephrologist could not believe that this condition (IgA Nephropathy) had progressed so rapidly at her age. This condition does not usually progress so rapidly, and it will usually take 20-30 years to get to end stage kidney failure. Tracy is now required to have dialysis treatments 3 times per week until she receives a new kidney. The process has begun to find Tracy a new kidney. Luckily, she has a living donor willing to donate if they are a match. She will be a patient at Wake Forest Baptist and this is where all procedures will take place involving her transplant. Transplant surgeries are extremely expensive as they must cover the cost of the recipients pre-transplant testing, surgery, and post-operative care in addition to the donor's pre-transplant testing, surgery, and post-operative care. Please help us raise money for Tracy's transplant. Thank you for your consideration and any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated. We could not do this without you!
