Guest Speaker: Irene from DonateLife
At the tender age of 19, Irene was diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus – a chronic inflammatory disease that affected her kidneys and immune system.
Despite chemotherapy treatment, Irene’s kidneys completely shut down and after 3½ years of haemodialysis, Irene finally accepted a live kidney donation from her mother.
19 years post-transplant, Irene now has two beautiful boys and states “Everything I have achieved since my transplant has only been possible because of my donor, my Mum.”
