Since it has been 23 weeks since my first post on January 30, 2009 I am getting very close to another milestone in the AR community, almost at reaching 50K I am excited, howeverthis blog I am now posting is to be a special blog that I want devoted to my daughter-in-law,
Victoria Hann Corbett
Vicky, who celebrates her 38th birthday this coming August 4th is battling an autoimmune disease. She needs our help with an abundance of prayers. She needs a miracle, a donor to come forth and provide her with a new kidney.
She was diagnosed with Sjogren’s, an autoimmune disease, in 2004 after the birth of her first child, my first grandchild, Nolan Bryce, and is now suffering End Stage Renal Disease from complications of Sjogren’s.
Sjögren's syndrome often is undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. The symptoms of Sjögren's syndrome may overlap or "mimic" those of other diseases including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and multiple sclerosis. Because all symptoms are not always present at the same time and Sjögren's can involve several body systems, physicians and dentists sometimes treat each symptom individually and do not recognize that a systemic disease is present.
Vicky is the wife of my first born son, John Michael and lives in Anderson, SC. She is the mother of my two grandsons, Nolan Bryce (4 to be 5 August 6) and Braydon Pierce who turned 3 on April 20th. She has managed to enthusiastically care for them even while enduring daily fatigue and exhaustion along with her loving husband, John. She works full-time during her entire ordeal. As a Certified Lactation Educator, she helps women establish a successful and loving nursing relationship with their babies. On top of all this, Vicky makes time to volunteer at community events such as cancer awareness days and the hospital’s Teddy Bear Clinic.
She started a blog, Sjogrens & Me, to help others who are suffering from this disease. Her blog is featured on Wellsphere, a comprehensive health information website.
Vicky is such a positive influence on the community and rarely even complains about her symptoms. According to Victoria she tell
She patiently is waiting for a kidney transplant and needs all the help we can provide. With a failure of a kidney, everyday life is most difficult for her and has been for the past 5 years. By having this kidney transpant it will allow her to have a real chance to lead a normal everyday life enjoying her 2 little ones and family.
* Incompatible Donor too often willing live donors do not meet the medical criteria. While it remains preferable (safer, easier, and less expensive) to receive a kidney from someone who is fully immunologically compatible, you can be an incompatible donor.
PLEASE, Help me use the power of the web and social media and viral spread this request to a world wide basis of networking. May we connect in this blogosphere to everyone who might know someone who can help.
Vicky as well as needing this kidney transpant, she and her family are in need of financial assistance to cover the extremely high costs of the transplant. A fundraising campaign has been established with theNational Transplant Assistance Fund (NTAF) to help offset their out-of-pocket expenses. To date, NTAF founded in 1983, is the largest financial assistance organization in the United States for transplants and is a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant communityfor over twenty-six years.
Dr. Jack Kolff and wife, Patricia, B.S.N., created the NHATF with the vision that all people should be able to receive life-saving organ transplants without regard to their financial situations. tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. To support this cause:All contributions are administered by NTAF exclusively for uninsured transplant-related expenses. Donations are please visit their webpage for Victoria Hann Corbett
May the hearts of those who can help make a difference.I thank you, my AR community family. Feel free to spread this dire message on twitter, facebook, and on your blog.
