Hi Twitter. I need your help. A few years ago, I had a freak accident that sent me into catastrophic kidney failure. I've been struggling to find a kidney donor ever since. I'm in dire need of a type O+/- kidney and ask that you please share my story. #kidneyfordevon 🧵👇

If you don't know me: Hi! I'm Devon. I’m a teacher, heart and soul. I pour my passion into creating design and technology classes, as well as bringing computer literacy to underserved communities. My life's mission is to make the magic of computing accessible to beginners.
I've been in kidney failure for 2.5 years now. What life is like: - Hooked up to dialysis machine 10 hrs/day (painful) - Carry 1.5L of dialysis solution in abdomen rest of time - Food/water very restricted, on 9 diff meds - Weak, no energy, struggling to stay positive 😭😭
I've pushed myself to the limit trying to get back to work. I miss teaching so much. But I have no chance of recovery until I get a kidney transplant. Please help me find a #kidneyfordevon. If we reach enough people, I know we'll find a donor. kidneyfordevon.com
