The Back Story

Eileen’s story began decades ago when she was first diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, an inflammatory disease that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and organs. For Eileen, the organs most affected by this horrible disease are her kidneys. In her early thirties her kidneys completely shut down and in July of 2002 she underwent surgery to receive a new kidney that was lovingly donated by her sister Heather. For over fourteen years and because of Heather’s unselfish gift, Eileen was able to live a relatively normal life.
