Christina Jackson, along with her mother, Paula, and sister, Andrea, met me at an event called “The Art of the Scar” that was hosted by the Missouri Kidney Program in September.
Christina was diagnosed with lupus after high school, and then following issues with insurance coverage, she experienced kidney failure, numerous seizures, dialysis, a stroke and a kidney transplant in her twenties
The family spoke about what they have learned from Christina and her experiences, and how they have dealt with it as a family. Christina is now healthy and graduated from college in December 2017.
