I’d like to introduce you to Cindy, my kidney transplant. Named after the nurse who tended to me in the hospital, Cindy has been with me since 2007. I tell people that Cindy calls the shots—and I work hard to manage my health, stay connected with my healthcare providers and make sure that she stays happy. It’s not easy, but I’m grateful that I have a functioning kidney, and that’s why I’m sharing my chronic kidney disease (CKD) journey to help both patients and their providers.
