kidney is getting a lot of attention in the local community. and as kolo 8 news now's matt vaughan shows us ... her story is helping raise awareness for organ donation. live i first found out about kerry kozlowski's situation through social media. and despite being new to reno ... she's already receiving a lot of support. although her goal is to find a matching donor ... kerry says she also wants the community to be educated about organ donation. ... "my real joy is
helping people, and if i can lend my voice with others to this cause, i know that other people will be touched." kerry kozlowski was leading what most would consider a mother of two boys. but in december of 2014 ... kerry got some unexpected news when she found out that she had kidney disease. "my life changed dramatically. i didn't have any symptoms, so when i was diagnosed it was a complete surprise." since her diagnosis ... kerry has had to quit her job and make several lifestyle changes. she now has to watch what she eats and has
stamina. "i used to be able to do a lot more than i do now." many people who need a kidney transplant often find a successful match within their family. which was the case for reno mayor hillary schieve. she was able to receive a kidney from her sister amanda ... and knows from personal experience the importance of talking about organ donation with those around you.

"i was in a really dark place because i was going on dialysis and i didn't have any matches. i didn't have any hope." but kerry is not alone in her struggle. in fact when it comes to organ transplants ... kidneys are the most needed. "just here in the state there are about 400-some-odd people
about 77% of nevadans who are waiting for any organ transplant. nationally, that number grows to 85%." although she's only been living in reno for about 7 months ... kerry has had an overwhelming amount of support from people in the community who want to help. which has given her new hope for finding a match. "there's no words to say, except thank you, and god bless you, every one of you that's reached out to me." kerry is currently in the final stage of chronic kidney disease and will start dialysis later this month. if you'd like to follow her progress ... or just want more information about organ donation ... we've posted links at kolotv.com under hot topics.
