The family of Pamela White will use the gift that they receive, and your prayers. So she can get a second chance at life with her new kidney

Pamela White, was diagnosed with hypertension (high blood pressure) at the age of 19, she was pregnant with her daughter at the time. After she gave birth in 1991 her high blood pressure was gone, until the year of 1999 she became sick with a cold, and was taken to the nearest hospital. She was seen and put on antibiotics for two weeks, then went back for a follow up, just to find out that both of her kidneys had already failed. She was put on dialysis for 1 year, and 6 months. Until, one day when she was receiving dialysis treatment and saying her prayers, the nurse approached her and said “I have some good news” at that moment, Pam began to cry because she knew her prayers were answered. The nurse spoke “today is your day; they have a kidney for you.” Pam had two hours to get to MUSC, and so she did. Pam, is the wife of Bernard White, they have three wonderful kids, and a dog by the name of Diamond. Before being diagnosed with the skin disease, Erythema Nodosum (EN), she was a Correctional Officer. They are treatment for EN but do to her kidney disease she can't take the medication. So, when the EN flairs up she has to rest with her legs elevated. Due to her medical condition she had to resign from her job. Months later she found out that she will need another kidney transplant within the next 8-12 months. She has insurance but it will not cover all medical expenses. God is so wonderful and great, without him she doesn’t know where she will be. So, now she needs a new kidney with God will and everyone’s help, it’s already done.
