CONGRATULATIONS TO GLADYS MANTLE (nee WHITE) on her 90th birthday on Thursday 31st July.



Above:  Gladys and also with Stacey her grand-daughter.



who has passed the first year of her Adult Nursing Degree.

Angie was on kidney dialysis for 8 years and subsequently had a transplant.  She has given us her thoughts in the letter below.

 Angela Dornan
Someone said to me when I started on dialyse that “you should dialyse to live, not live to dialyse.”  I kept that with me through the whole 8 years of dialysis, especially as by the 7th year I wholly believed I would never get a transplant.  I did a university course (being on dialysis made sure I had plenty of study time!), and we made sure we went on holiday every year. There are plenty of places in the UK  that offer dialysis away from home.
I got my transplant after 8 years and I met someone recently who dialysed for 11 years before she got hers; so there is still hope if you are on dialysis and have been for a while. When I got my transplant, I decided to do everything I had always wanted to do as I felt I had been given a second chance; so I applied for my nursing degree – first year passed successfully!! – and a motorbike!
I had lots of support from my friends and family to get through the whole thing.  If you haven’t got that support and would like someone to talk to, drop Pat a line . She knows how to get in touch, and I’ll give you a ring.
Thanks,    Angie Dornan
