While sitting at an event to learn more about how to find a donor for my husband, I felt like a big failure. I was and am my husband’s kidney champion. It was my job to find him a living donor and quick. At that meeting, all the raw emotions of despair that were deep inside bubbled to the top, I was on the ledge. Then, a woman named Darci walked across the room and with her infectious personality showed me kindness, validation, compassion, and gave me a plan to march forward in the quest of finding a donor. Throughout our entire kidney journey and beyond, she has cheered us forward and always in the right direction. Words of thanks would never be able to express my gratitude to this amazing woman.
