Hi, I’m Carrie. I want to tell you a true story. When I was sixteen, I came down with strep throat. The first round of antibiotics the doctor prescribed did not work. I ended up in the emergency room because I was so sick, and it turned out that not only had the antibiotics not killed the strep infection, I now had Glomerulonephritis. The hospital stay got rid of the strep infection, but my renal function went downhill from there. After a couple of years of dialysis, I was matched with a kidney donor and received a transplant that saved my life.
