unnamed

Maci Hyman is only a 13-month-old baby girl from South Carolina. At this tender young age instead of playing with other kids, her activities take place in a room at Prisma Health Children's Hospital where she's been hospitalized since January. Maci was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic syndrome.  It's a disease that disrupts the bone marrow production of her healthy blood cells in her body. Often it is a precursor to leukemia. MDS can be life threatening in some cases. Doctors advise her parents to search for a bone marrow match. The bone marrow transplant is the only thing that can 100 percent cure the disease. Are you in good health and have the desire to save a life? If you answered yes, please visit  BeTheMatch.org and take the test to see if you can save Maci. it's simply swabbing the inside of your mouth with a cotton swab. The test is simple and free for anyone.

Margot Datta, 45 from Natherlands needs a living Kidney donor

Dutta

Margot Datta, 45, of Culemborg, Netherlands, requires an immediate kidney donation from a living donor. She is looking for someone with blood type A+, or compatible.
 

Her story:

Hello, my name is Margot Datta and I am 45 years old.

At the age of 14 I became very ill and was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease which impacted my kidneys.

In 1996, my mother donated a kidney to me. Unfortunately, this didn't go well and the kidney needed to be removed two months later. I was then on dialysis for over two years which was painful and very tiring.

In 1998, I received a kidney transplant from a deceased donor that worked for over 20 years; however the kidney function has decreased over the past few years to now where it is only at 5%. I am back on dialysis four times a day and now require a new kidney.

My prognosis is not good, and my time is limited if I do not receive a kidney transplant soon.

I'm on the waiting list of eurotransplant. The waiting period is on average 3 years; however in my case it's going to take longer because I already had 2 previous transplants. I have a lot of antibodies in my blood. This means that I am also hard to match. My blood type is A+.

The best chance for my surviving is to find a living donor. Transplants with living donors gives me a better chance of success In my case because I can get a treatment for the transplant to have my antibodies removed in my blood (desensitization).

The UMC Utrecht, is ready to take care of my donor and can assist in any information required. There's a recovery time of a few weeks, but people can live very well with one kidney, provided you are healthy. My mother has not experienced any adverse consequences of the donation and has been living with 1 kidney for more than 22 years.

I'm now looking for a living donor. Do you know of someone or are you someone who can save my life by giving me a kidney?

Love, Margot
