My name is Garnat Turner, I am 9 years old.  I was previously on Hemodialysis as well as Peritoneal dialysis during 2017 - 2018. During that period of time it was very difficult for my family and I. I had to go to lots and lots of doctors appointments on top of having surgeries.

 Then one early morning we received “the call”, we were told there may be a an available kidney for me. My parents, nana and I hopped on the road to Boston’s Children’s Hospital. On March 4, 2018, I received a kidney transplant. Since then I have been able to resume regular play activities with my family and friends again. I am no longer falling asleep during the day because I am not exhausted. I am very happy and thankful for receiving such a priceless gift.

So this year, I am participating in the fashion show to continue to spread awareness about kidney disease and the needs of those individuals/families it effects. Please consider helping the Northeast Kidney Foundation with their fundraising efforts.
