My 8 month old daughter needs a new kidney, if i match i would love to give her the greatest gift of life i can.

Little baby Born with end stage kidney failure...

My 8 month old daughter Riley mcCracken was born with end stage kidney failure, she was born weighing in at 5lb 8oz and would not eat, it was the best plan to have her transported to childrens hospital of central california I was informed when riley was 3 days old she only had 1 kidney a few days later they tried another test to discover both kidneys barely functioning. Every day seemed to be set back after set back, I was told my daughter would need dialysis when she was only 1 week old if she did not improve. Seeing my daughter being poked with needles and hooked up to machines makes you feel helpless. After a few days riley began to eat more and eventually her creatine level stabalized along with her blood pressure enough for her to go home. Riley has been up and down since she came home. Losing weight, being re- admitted to the hospital for infections. Due to her kidney function riley takes numerous medications. Riley goes in for checkups once or twice a month at childrens hospital I was informed on 10-24-11 that she will be needing a kidney transplant when she is 22lbs. Riley currently weights 15 pounds. Riley is a very happy child no matter what is happening around her she is always smiling. I am a single mother who would do anything for her daughter, I am willing to donate one of my kidneys if i am a match for my daughter to enjoy her life, she will be having her surgery at standford hospital which is over 3 hours from my house I will do everything i can for riley to have the chance at life she deserves.
