    I wanted to ask you a question and thi is the only place I could find to contact you. I was reading your story and saw that you weren’t eligible for a transplant because of having a small spot of melanoma removed. Does this mean you just can’t go on the list? Could you recieve a transplant if someone were to donate a kidney directly to you?

      Correct – I cannot get on the transplant registery for two and a half to five years. I also cannot receive a transplant from anyone for the same length of time. This is because there is an increased risk of cancer, when taking the immunosuppressive medications required after a transplant.

    I wish everyone who has been thru similar circumstances have the spirit, stamina and will to live like you have, Jennifer! Unfortunately, I’ve seen a few giving up on their lives. I love your energy & appreciate your attitude towards life as I strive to be the same. Wish you all the best in your struggle to recover from your medical condition. Keep writing & keep all your hopes alive, Insha Allah – you’ll soon see your dreams coming true, if you continue with the same zeal & zest! I am 100% sure! Love & respect to you …

    Jennifer please let me know where you are receiving this stem cell therapy and how much it costs? I suppose it is not FDA or whatever agency approves it! Please let me know my brother has been on dialysis since May and the reason his kidneys failed is not none to doctors! I am sure the stem cells will help him please help us!

      The information you are requesting can be found on my public Facebook page – see link on the “media” tab in my blog. You will also be able to connect with others, who have had or will be getting the same treatment for kidney failure. I’ve answered many questions there. The location of the treatment is in my previous blog post, titled “Liquid Gold” (listed on the right side).
