Once upon a time, I wrote a blog post about my mom's best friend, Joanne Prokop.
You can find the post, A Kinder Kidney, in the December/2012 folder. I wrote about Joanne's struggle to find a kidney donor. She has Polycystic Kidney Disease and has been waiting to find a match with a donor.
Good News! After four long years of waiting... a match has been found and Joanne goes in for transplant surgery tomorrow to replace her failing kidneys.
Please keep her and her family in prayers and positive thoughts as she begins the new chapter of her life with a healthy kidney.
An update to the update: Joanne has been recovering very quickly after her kidney transplant. It was very nice to see her and know she is doing well.
