Faizan, waiting for a kidney transplant

Faizan is currently waiting for a third kidney transplant after being born with renal failure.

FaizanHe received his first transplant at the age of three, which lasted around ten years.

He then received a living kidney donation from his dad.

Sadly, his second transplant has now also started to fail and he is currently on dialysis.

Faizan has been told he may have a long wait, due to a shortage of donors from the Asian community and the need for a very close match.

Faizan said: “When I found out I needed a transplant again I was very worried and a little bit scared, to be honest.

“I’ve been given an approximate waiting time of ten years.”

“The gift of an organ is life-changing. I know it’s going to be a while but I do look forward to it.”
