” I’m not really happy, “Woolley told the television station.
As both kidneys were removed, Woolley required four-hour dialysis three times a week, KDVR reported.
” My life was completely changed, ” told Woolley for the television station. “Dialysis is no picnic. No matter how common you get, it robs you of your life. “
Woolley now needs at least one healthy kidney and the average waiting period for a transplant is seven years, KDVR reported. More than 95,000 people are on a waiting list, reported the TV station.
At least five people have contacted KDVR and told reporters that they were willing to offer a kidney.
“People are wonderful. It’s great to see good things happen, “Woolley said to the television station.
