My Sister's Disease

Hello everyone,

My sister, who is one year older than me, is my best friend. We have always been close growing up, and we are always laughing when we are together. Three years ago, my sister went and got her blood tested as part of a routine check up. The results that came back from the laboratory changed our lives forever. My sister was diagnosed with end stage renal (kidney) disease. The worst part is that doctors cannot figure out the cause of it so we have no access to treatment for her. We have been to see the top kidney specialists in Toronto, ON, Canada and were still not provided with any information. As you can imagine, this is very upsetting and frustrating for the entire family. My sister is now on Peritoneal Dialysis. She has a very restricted diet from the doctors including being caffeine-free, chocolate-free, meat-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and the list goes on. She needs a kidney transplant urgently, O POSITIVE blood. As her sister I can see the way she is struggling, but most importantly I see the way she is still fighting and staying positive. 

I have set up this Go Fund Me Account, hopefully to find someone who wishes to donate a kidney (O POSITIVE) to her more so than donate money... However, I am still praying that someone can donate to this page to help my sister afford her special needs for her dietary restrictions as it is very costly, and she is a server who has had to take some off work as she is now suffering from weakness and anemia. Any amount of donation helps. If you have read this far, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love my sister, and I want to get her better as soon as possible. Your contribution is wonderful. Thank you!
