Nichole was pregnant when her sister was diagnosed with stage four renal failure. She immediately wanted to help, but would have to wait until her daughter was born. In August 2014, Nichole’s daughter was born. In September, Nichole’s mother passed away. In mourning the loss of her mother, Nichole’s plans to help her sister were put on hold. When her sister was put on dialysis in December, Nichole began the process, again, of donating her kidney to her sister. It wasn’t until after the transplant surgery that Nichole realized the miracle of transplant. In the wake of a family tragedy, life was renewed. In the end, Nichole’s family is stronger than ever and Nicole has dedicated her life to becoming a transplant social worker.
