THE FUll lETTER
I've had kidney failure since high school. From that point on I knew exactly what I wanted to do - change people's lives through comedy. When I was really sick comedy helped me heal through the hardest of times and I wanted to be a part of that. I'm now 27 and I was lucky enough to go to school in New York for film and TV, perform in Off Broadway plays, be part of really cool projects and gain valuable experience in the craft I want to be in. However that career is coming to a stop because of my health restraints. I'm approaching the need for dialysis - which means I'll be stuck hooked up to a machine for 12 hours a day. I'm young now, and If I get a LIVING donor (as opposed to a kidney donation from a cadaver) it could mean that I only have to do this one more time for the rest of my life.
My philosophy is no one should ever have to "wait" for their life to resume. I am currently on the waitlist for a kidney but that could mean years before I get one. Finding my kidney champion means I get to fully focus on living a life filled with giving through healing and laughter.
I really appreciate you taking the time to read my story. I'm hoping you want to be a part of my journey by sharing it, supporting me, and helping me track down my hero.
