Hi, I am Talanda, and I need a kidney transplant to live. I have been married to the love of my life, Bobby, for twenty-six years. I have amazing nieces and nephews I look after. My favorite things to do are cooking, playing games on my phone, and working in my flower garden.
Before getting sick, I worked as a customer service manager with Walmart for twenty-two years.
My life drastically changed over three years ago due to CKD Kidney Disease. My routine checkup and biopsy led to a diagnosis of focal glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). In October of 2022, my kidney function depleted causing End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). Unfortunately, I had to start peritoneal dialysis at home every night, nine hours each time.
Dialysis is only a short-term solution and not a cure. I experience extreme fatigue, and there is a limitation on my daily fluid intake. But I am not giving up.
Nevertheless, I have faith in the healing power of Jesus Christ! I have been helping people all my life, not in a million years did I think I would need help myself. Yet I am asking for your help. When I think about my husband, and my niece that is in my care, and family and their love and support, I push and pray even more to find someone who could be the answer to my prayers. Please share my story.

I would be grateful if you shared this page.
