Jessica’s Story

For all of you that know me, you know I have been struggling with my health for some time now and you have been amazing support along the way. Now more than ever, I need your help. I got some bad news at my Dr appointment and in a nutshell my kidney is failing again and fast. I NEED a live donor for A KIDNEY NOW! The average wait time for a kidney is 5-6 years. I do not have 5-6 years. My arteries will not be able to handle a transplant in that amount of time because of stenosis (hardening of the arteries) because of my past surgeries and transplants and I will not be a candidate for a transplant no longer. Dialysis will be my only option, again, which is right around the corner, and super harsh on your heart. This is why it is so important to me to find a donor as soon as possible with your help!!!
Being a donor is simple. There is no harsh surgery, only laparoscopic. There is no cost to you, my insurance covers it all. PLEASE….consider being a donor. It is just a phone call. I can give you the information you need to contact the Living Donor Team.

Please call me if you are interested at 414-704-4767, message me, email me at, or call the Living Donor Team directly at 414-805-0310, Option #1, and tell them you would like to be tested to become a donor for Jessica Wickersheimer.
If you are not interested, PLEASE do me a favor and pass this along to friends and family and everyone you know. I truly appreciate your help and support. Life is too short and I am too young!
