Single mother, 27, makes emotional appeal for Kidney donation


A single mother of one daughter is making an emotional appeal today for a life-saving kidney donation.

Below, in her own words is the the story of Curlethia Ghomes, 27, and how you can help.


Hi, my name is Curlethia Ghomes, 27 years old, single mother of one daughter , from Antigua and Barbuda.

my journey started on April 11th 2011, I was home sick for weeks, started losing weight and my skin colour was getting pale. I went to the doctor and they run some tests and told me the worse news I could ever imagine I was diagnosed of kidney failure.

I got an instant breakdown, Emotional stressed which lead to my depression.

I felt like my life was over At such a young age, I was then admitted to the hospital for months living my 1 year old baby girl in the care of my mom. My heart was broken into pieces because I wasn’t there to nurture my baby girl, this was so hard for me.

Despite it all I never lose my faith in God and always told myself “God knows best”.

I’ve decided to come public with my story, because this past years has been really hard for me and my biggest fear is losing my battle and living my baby girl behind, I am kindly seeking a kidney donor.

Anyone who is willing to help save a life you can contact me or my sister 1268 775 4615 or 12687851506.

Thank you in advance and your help will be greatly appreciated.

  1. I think we need even a blood type to start to get possible donors, not just willingness but a match.

    If you’re reading this sis, please update with at least that information perhaps.

    Good luck and God’s grace.

  2. Whenever a loved one has passed on, do doctors asked for their organs for critically ill patients or it’s the deceased family members who as to tell doctors they’d wish to donate organs? Now seeing this I wish I was enlightened enough to have my grandmother’s organs donated

  3. When my mom was in her early 60’s, she was blessed with the gift of a kidney from a woman in her early 40’s who passed away from a tragic car accident. This gift was a perfect match for my mother. She was able to enjoy 14 more years free from dialysis with her family. Stay in prayer my dear, your blessing is coming.
