Then I also contracted Hepatitis C from all of the blood transfusions I was getting because of my crazy kidneys. The doctors said that one of the donors probably had such a slight case that they were not able to detect it during the screening process.

The week before my wedding, they told me they found the cancer. The week after, I had a partial hysterectomy.

I said to myself, ?how can this possibly happen?? I had just gone through all the chemotherapy and now, I have cervical cancer. I guess I just have to laugh about it; because if not, it is just too much for me to handle.

I do not feel like I was gypped in my life at all. I actually feel as though I was given a special gift.It made me see my life and my family in a different light.

It is somewhat of a rare genetic disease.

I find myself getting so upset because I was never able to be a good mother for my daughter or a good grandmother for my granddaughter because I was always so sick. I only hope that I can live long enough to see my granddaughter graduate.

Most of the patients are poor, and on Medicare, and doctors don't make as much money treating those kinds of patients.

No one can guarantee me anything. I am much older and much sicker than I was when I had the first transplant, but I am confident in my doctors and confident that I will find a donor.

I think sometimes it makes you sicker than what you really are to take so much medication.
