Hello just wanted to introduce myself, my name is LanoraS. I was first diagnosed at the age of fourteen. I've been on both peritoneal and hemodialysis. I received my first kidney transplantat when I was 20yrs old it lasted exactly 10 days. I was then placed on hemodialysis, and had no idea it would be another 17 years before I would receive another transplant. I'm very thankful to the donor and his family for giving me the opportunity to live a normal life again.
