There is a genetic disorder in her family that April Simmons of Rancho Cordova has inherited. It is a rare disease which has claimed her kidneys and forced her to undergo dialysis treatment.
"I'll be the third one in my family in need of a kidney," said Simmons.
She also said that the dialysis involves greater than normal sugar intake, so she walks daily to burn off the extra calories. During the summer Simmons started wearing a t-shirt which reads, "I need a kidney." The shirt also displays her telephone number and a plea for help.
So far, she has been stopped several times by curious people, but no one has offered to become a live donor.
