WHO IS SALEY ?
I am a 20 year Kidney disease survivor! More importantly, I am wife, a daughter, a sister, an aunt and mentor to so many. My journey with End Stage Renal Disease began when I was 15 years old. I spent four years on Hemodialysis before being blessed with my first kidney transplant in 2004. For the next 15 years that followed my transplant, I focused on making my second chance at life count by making myself and those around me better. In 2016, I graduated from pharmacy school and have been working as a pharmacist for the past 4 years. Unfortunately, in January 2019, my transplanted kidney failed and I had to resume dialysis and seek a second transplant. I thrived on home dialysis for more than a year and a half. On November 7th 2020, I received my second kidney transplant from a deceased donor.
