Welcome to the Catwalk for Kidneys page for Valerie Zakrzewski and Lawrence Wilkinson. Valerie Zakrzewski is a 22 year old. strong-willed, independent little gal from Green Island NY. She was born with a rare genetic disease called Cystinosis and has been blessed to received a kidney from a donor on June 17, 2017. Prior to this gift of life, she had been on dialysis for the past 9 years. Valerie enjoys volunteering, art and playing the piano. She has never let her illness define who she is, she walks through life with a positive attitude and is blessed to be able to tell her story on our catwalk today. This is Valerie's 5th year walking the Catwalk For Kidneys. It's an event she looks forward to each year and is walking with her good friend Lawrence Wilkinson . Lawrence walks to support Valerie, and the great need for organ donation.
