ROGER MIMS

 

Hello,

 

My name is Roger Mims. I’m 38 years old, and I live in Tennessee. I have a hereditary, incurable, usually fatal disease called Polycystic Kidney Disease. In April of 2008, I was suddenly hospitalized and placed on dialysis. Following that, I was able to avoid dialysis for a year by following proper dietary restrictions. However, I now must rely on dialysis to live--5 hours a day, 3 times a week. Although I had made my living since high school as a diesel mechanic, I can no longer perform the tasks of my job.

 

None of my family members is eligible to donate a kidney to me. Please find it in your heart to help me find a donor by sharing my story and information. If you are interested in being a potential donor, please contact my coordinator listed below. I am on the waiting list for a transplant and am registered at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. I have Type O blood. My family and I thank you and appreciate your every effort no matter how small. Thank you!

 

Sincerely,

Roger Mims
