While June has been undergoing dialysis since that time, she has been placed on a waiting list for a new kidney. To date, no match has been found
“The donor does not face a long stay in the hospital, and the operation can now be done laparoscopically, requiring a stay of no more than three days,” “Transplant centers are extremely careful in checking potential donors’ medical condition, and living with a single kidney is no problem in itself - some five percent of the population is born with only one kidney.” Because of their age, June’s daughters and son could not serve as donors. “It is our fervent hope that a living donor can be found to allow our beloved nurse June to live a normal life with her family,” Joan and Charles says.“Hence, we appeal to you and the community of Church in America, the Caribbean Community and healthcare Community, hoping that a living donor might be found.” June is listed under Emory Donation of Kidney program. June, a nurse, has been a dedicated volunteer of Deskan and the Deskan family. Please contact Joan 770.498-2152, 770-256-0356
