“My journey started in the 1990’s when I was in my teens, due to scarring on both of my kidneys, resulted only in having a kidney. After being on dialysis for approx. 18 months this left my physically drained and tired, “But then” on 5th July 1995 “came the call” a transplant and this to me was a Gift of Life. So to say a big Thank You I decided to do a sponsored bike ride of 20 miles, as on 5th July this year, I will be celebrating 20 years of my transplant.
So I would like to say a big Thank You to all the staff, doctors and my Renal Team at the MRI who have always supported me, also to my husband who has been there for me since day one, my daughter Katy who I was extremely lucky to have, my family and friends who I work with. I am a strong believer, I always remain positive and I am determined you can achieve anything you want too.”
Our thanks for Angela for her support of Kidneys for Life and raising over £340 for the charity.
