My name is Ahmad Alsardary and I am a kidney transplant patient. I am a 23 years old student attending school at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia studying in the field of Occupational Therapy. When I was born, I was diagnosed with a disease called nephrotic syndrome which meant my kidneys were no longer functioning. At the age of 5, the doctors took both my kidneys out and I was put on Dialysis for 3 years. On March 31, 1998, I received a new kidney from a deceased person who had died from a car accident at the age of 16 (May God rest his soul). I have also had an open heart surgery at a young age. Along with kidney and heart problems, I also have asthma and sinus problems.
I lived with this kidney for 12 years and I was on immuno-suppressants along with many other various medications. A year and half ago, my kidney failed. So I am writing this to ask anyone who is interested in being a donor to perhaps step forward with no obligations and get tested to see if you are a good match to donate your kidney.
Despite all these problems, I have continued my education and I am a student in my last year studying for my Masters in Occupational Therapy for one main goal. I want to help others who have various medical diagnosis that inflict their daily lives. I want to help people who are less fortunate that I am in health. I live my life to the fullest and I have gone a long way in order to achieve this long term goal. If I don’t receive a kidney soon, I will not have the capability or the energy to fulfill my destiny of helping others.
At this point, my kidney has failed and I am on Dialysis three times a week for 4-6 hours each treatment. Dialysis is really horrible and exhausting on my whole body. However it helps clean my blood and allows me to keep living. Dialysis does make me exhuasted and nauseous throughout the day . I cannot drink too much fluid and I don’t have the pleasure of eating and drinking anything I want. On top of this I am in school so its very tiring! So I really am in a desperate situation. Again, I would kindly ask if anyone will step up and save my life. If you are unable to do so, a simple prayer or letting others know would be appreciated. Thank you and may God bless you.
If you are interested please contact me on Facebook or call me at 215-667-9395. Anyone who is blood type of B or O and has to be 21+ is a good candidate for donation.
Or contact the transplant coordinator:
