About Jasmine

Jasmine Stalker-Firth

Jasmine was born with end-stage renal failure (chronic kidney disease). She was on peritoneal dialysis for 13.5 hours every day which cleared her blood of toxins and took off any excess fluid. Her diet was carefully monitored so that she got everything she needed in order to grow normally and become eligible for a kidney transplant.

Jasmine was in hospital for three months after birth. Then, she was on dialysis at home for 17 months until October 2009, when her father, Neil, gave her a kidney.

Update: 10.9.19: We are coming up to 10 years of the kidney, we have had two biopsies to check everything is ok, and everything is as well as can be expected. To anyone who is reading this, looking for hope, hang on in there, it’s a tough road but it is worth every step. We wish you all the very best and send you all our love.
