WHO IS SALEY'S JOURNEY?

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. I spent the next 15 years making each day with my second chance at life 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. In January 2019, my transplanted kidney failed and I had to resume dialysis and seek a second transplant. Today, I am thriving on home dialysis which allows me to continue to work and be independent.

WHY

My passion to launch Saley’s Journey stems from my own feelings hopelessness, alienation through my 20 year battle with chronic kidney disease. I want people battling kidney disease to know that they can still dream the impossible dream and accomplish it. I want us all to work as a community, a tribe to support and cheer on one another on our good and bad days.
