Lynn Johnson

By Lynn Johnson Hill and O'Day Wilson

I had gotten really sick and my doctor, Dr. Primm, sent me to Children's when I was 13 months old. I am now 41. They found out I had diabetes. They got me on the insulin I needed. We were there for 10 days and all the doctors and nurses were great. I have lived a normal life since then. I have two daughters, 16 and 19, and one granddaughter, nine months. I have now been on dialysis for almost three years. Its rough but you have to do what you have to do. I need a kidney donor so bad. My blood type is A+. I just want to thank Children's for what they did for us. I would not be here without them.

Children's is the greatest. They go all they way to do what they can.
