My name is Dorothy Davis. I was born on December 25, 1984. When I was 16 years old I was diagnosed with a Kidney Disorder and High Blood Pressure. I struggled for years going back and forth to doctors and several hospitalization as a result. I tried having children and had 2 miscarriages. Finally in 2008 god blessed me with my beautiful daughter Shaniya who was born at 5 1/2 months weighing only 1 lb 4 oz. This was due to my kidney disorder and high blood pressure why she had to come so early. My life and hers was more at risk if I went full term. She is now 5 years old and doing well. In 2009 I was blessed with another daughter Domonique who was born at 5 months again due to my medical condition. She only weighed 14oz not even a whole lb and the doctor told me she would not make it and told me to come say good bye to her. When I went to say good bye to her she grabbed my pinky finger and all machines started pumpimg again. The doctor said it was a miracle and all she needed was her mother. I told the Dr. it was god watching out for me and my daughter knowing we could not live without each other. Now Domonique is 3 years old. She has some issues in development but for the most part she is fine. As a result of the struggle I went through to bring my beautiful daughters into this world I went into Renal (kidney) Failure in August 2010.I am now on dialysis and in need of a kidney transplant. My health is deteriorating as a result of my medical condition I need a surgery and many other medical procedures prior to getting a new kidney. The Dr. explained to me that if I don not get the transplant I will not live long as dialysis deteriorates your body. I struggled so hard to bring my babies into this world I would hate to not be able to see them grow up. I need them and they need me. A kidney transplant is consider an elective procedure so it is my choice to get the transplant. I am only 28 years old and want to see many more years. Due to a kidney transplants being an elective I have to raise money on my own for the transplant. I currently receive medicare due to my condition but even with medicare I have to raise 25,000.00 just to have a successful recovery for the first 3 years after my transplant . I have gone to the kidney transplant orientation and learned all of this information.I was so over whelmed I was just ready to give up because I know I dont have that kind of money. My mother talked to me about and explained the importance of livivng for my children. So I am no longer giving up. The waiting list for a dead donor kidney is 22 months if I can not find a compatible living donor. EIther way I still need 25,000.00 for medication and the treatment after the transplant. I can not be placed on the donor list until I raise at least half of the 25,000.00 which is 12,500.00 because I was told by the transplant center they have to know I am serious about getting this transplant. I know God will always bless me and my daughters and keep us safe. I really want to live a long life so I can raise my 2 beautiful daughters so I am reaching out to all my friends, family and anyone else who will donate money to my kidney transplant fund. I want to thank god an everyone who is willing to donate contributiontions to my transplant fund. I have attached photos of me and my family for you to see how much I have to live for again thank you all.
