Weekly Digest- Wanted: A Kidney for Nikki

It’s the middle of spring, I am 4 months out from surgery, and I really am looking forward to summer! The weather has been weird this year, hasn’t it? Hopefully, it’s on the upswing, right?

So far so good with my transplant. We are still changing medicines, but the kidney is working well. Hooray!

I still would love some stories for donors and families of kidney donors. But until then, I am going to try to highlight stories of other people looking for donors. I published these on Facebook, but I didn’t put them on my blog. So, I think I am going to publish the stories of the people that I share on Facebook on the blog as well. Some may get a solo post depending on how much information is provided on Facebook or if they or a family member sends it in. Just another chance for exposure…

My name is Manjinder Singh and I was diagnosed with kidney failure in 2013.

ManjinderI am highly convinced that upon receiving a kidney I will have a completely different outlook on life, in fact I already do. A second chance at life will mean everything to me and my family. A chance to live out my dreams again, a chance to attend medical school and most important a chance to help others in need. My inspiration remains the same as before. I have always sought ways of helping those that are less fortunate. Community service is a huge concept in my religion and it is something that I value very much. If I am given a second chance at life, I will make sure it doesn’t go to waste, but rather I become an example of someone who did the right thing.

If after reading my brief story you feel like having yourself tested to be a potential donor, please contact the following transplant center and/or visit this link to fill out a kidney donor questionnaire using my DOB of 10/07/1988 and full name of Manjinder Singh. I thank you for reading about my struggle and possibly considering to be a donor.
