|Dialysis needle in the arm|
I envisioned helping my mother over 7 years ago when she rejected to have my kidney; I had planned to raise awareness for living and deceased organ donation. I didn't know exactly what I was going to do, or how I was going to do it, but I knew that in order to make it a norm, people have to know about it.
I strongly encourage people to become donors because it can save lives. My mother wasn't the only one waiting for a kidney, her hospital (St. Paul's) and Dialysis Clinic was packed every day with many others in her same situation, young and old. They all have to wait somewhere between 5 to 10+ years to hopefully get a deceased kidney.

This has been a long journey that seems to have only begun.
