M.o.M. Michelle Needs a Kidney Donor

Search for a Kidney Donor

We're asking for your help to find an eligible kidney donor for Michelle. It may take hundreds of applications to find a potential living donor. Several MarineParents.com staff members, their spouses, and a member of our board of directors have filled out the application to be considered; so far, only one is still in Michelle's "potentially eligible" pool of kidney donors. We need to get the word out.

Medical City Dallas

Michelle's care facility has been updated to Medical City Healthcare in Dallas on 3/9/2022. They are coordinating the search for a living donor. The website has videos about being a living donor and the process involved. To learn more, visit their website directly at https://medicalcityhospital.com/livingdonor. The previous Care Facility in Ft. Worth will be notifying the potential donors about this change.

Michelle's Story

Michelle is the single mother of a Marine and a 14-year old daughter. She is on kidney dialysis five days a week, five hours a day. Michelle currently has no income, feels sick most days, and cannot work. She's in the middle of paperwork to apply for assistance, but that takes time. She needs financial help now. Her tax return helped her catch up with utilities. Her Marine son has been making her car payment to get to dialysis while she waits for a kidney donor. Her son's unit is in the middle of preparations to deploy.

Michelle is humble and giving; she's a volunteer for MarineParents.com and has been an active participant (along with her daughter, Abigayle) on Team Marine Parents. She is a community relations volunteer and continues to talk with recruiters to share the website and services with recruit families. She is a Marine Mom. It's time to implement Semper Family.
