I have the pleasure of working with an absolutely lovely lady. She was pregnant with her first child when I was expecting my second so we had lots to talk about and share. She is due any day now with her second child – a girl. As usual, decisions over type of delivery, family support, time off work etc. have been priorities – and for most us, enough to cope with!
However, her sister-in-law is also in urgent need of a kidney. Just 33 years old, Premila suffers from Systemic Lupus Erythamatosis and currently both her kidneys have failed. Premila is amazing, but I can’t help also thinking about my friend who has all the normal growing family challenges and things to think about, but also the worry of a close member of her family being in need. That puts my daily worries into perspective.
If you can help my friend and Premila with their kidney appeal – even if by just sharing the link to her story, I would be eternally grateful. I’m hoping we can put some of our collective mum network and support to amazing use!
Premila is looking for a kidney donor compatible with blood group O or A.
