Remember this post? At the end of my post, I wrote about Marielle....Lisa, the Domestic Diva's Sunshine girl. Marielle was recently admitted back into the hospital and spent a few days in ICU. She is still in the hospital but out of ICU and is now in END Stage Kidney failure. Lisa's sister and brother have both gone through the process of testing to see if they are a match for their niece...but, they are not. Both Lisa and her husband are also unable to donate their kidneys to their daughter. Lisa's younger sister will now be tested to see if she can possibly be a donor.
Marielle had a liver transplant as an infant and so she is harder to match since she carries her own antibodies and those of her donor's.
Anyone considering being a donor must be in good health. You may contact Joann Palmer of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia at (215)590-2449, for more information about how you may be able to help by being a kidney donor for this beautiful, 15 year old girl.
You can also help by posting this on your blog and help spread the word! You may read more about Marielle's recent admittance into the hospital on Lisa's blog.
Above all, please say a prayer for my friend, Lisa and her daughter, Marielle and the rest of the family.
