Philadelphia Beauty Needs Living Kidney Donor

W

Corina is 34-year’s-old and loves boxing, cooking, her husband Bob and their dog, Ernie. She is a resident of Philadelphia for the last two decades after moving to the US from Venezuela. Her life was perfect till 2011, the year she came down with an awful sinus infection. The doctors couldn’t figure out why her blood pressure was through the roof or what was going on. After a long and critical investigation it turns out that she had something called IGA nephropathy. Corina was only 27 years old then.

But Corina was very strong inside. She thought being diagnosed with chronic kidney disease—that rapidly progressed—wasn’t a life sentence for her. She refused to let it hold her back or get her down. She found ways to stay active and to stay positive. The specialists said it could take 20 years until her kidneys would stop working but unfortunaely It only took 5.

Corina is 34 now, she used to love boxing and travelling. Right now, her life isn’t the same and she doesn’t feel the same, either. For her walking is exhausting, talking is exhausting. Yet she is still hopeful.  

She needs a living kidney donor. With a new kidney she will box again, take Ernie for a walk longer than 10 minutes and surprise her husband with a trip somewhere that doesn't require 3 months of preparation with doctor’s notes, dialysis refills, and prescription renewals. Would you consider being a savior to Corina? If you answered yes, please download this form: bit.ly/JeffersonDonorForm and email it to  This email address is being protected from spambots.
