Regarding the transplant list for my potential kidney donor, I want to thank everyone who called in for the screening. I know many of you that had called in may be wondering why you hadn’t been contacted yet by the hospital for further work up. I spoke to St. Luke’s Hospital and they had encountered a few problems so things were not moving along very quickly. However, they suggested that I reach out to people who had already passed the phone screen and ask them to call back now to the transplant center (832-355-4100) and tell the screeners that you had already passed the initial screening but wanted to reinitiate contact. Michelle McClaren is the coordinator assistant – mention her name to the screener and remind them that your planned recipient is Dominique (Nikki) Brooks.
I want to thank all of you who have expressed an interest in my situation, who have shared my posts, and have shared my story with your friends and families. We are still searching for a Kidney for Nikki.
A living donor candidate is a person who is healthy, well-informed and makes a voluntary decision to donate one of their kidneys. Living donors must be over 18 and in good general health, have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of less than 30, a non-smoker, with no evidence of significant high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, kidney disease, heart disease or hepatitis.
Thanks for helping us find a living kidney donor. Please spread the word and/or call us at 770-310-2426 for info to do a 15-minute phone screening or St. Luke’s Transplant Department directly at 832-355-4100 on behalf of me, Dominique Brooks.
Be Inspired — Give Life!
