Kidney and Pancreas Recipient
When Sabrina was diagnosed at the age of 8 with juvenile diabetes, her pancreas was no longer working. Over the years, her kidneys began failing as well. Sabrina began dialysis and her doctors put on the list for a kidney transplant.
Four months later, Sabrina learned that she would receive both a kidney and a pancreas.
It was a bittersweet blessing; she knew the gift of life had meant someone else’s sacrifice.
“That’s why I now share my story,” she says. “I can’t tell you how wonderful my life has become. An organ donor truly saves lives and gives hope.”
