Tiffany Hawkes is a 8 year cancer survivor who is now facing chronic kidney disease due to battling type 1 diabetes for nearly half her life. She is searching for a live kidney donor to help prolong her life. Currently dialysis is not recommended, but seeing that her kidney function is below 20% it is a reality that she is facing. Tiffany has been put on the Hartford Transplant list, but doctors see a 5-6 year waiting list. Therefore she is looking for a live donation to better her chances of survival.
Tiffany has a blood type of A+, but any blood type can qualify. Help be that hero and help with her cause. Whether it’s donating, a kind word or just sharing with others. Let’s help get the word out and get a Kidney for Tiffany.
