Melanie Perry talks to another patient as she undergoes her tri-weekly dialysis treatment, removing toxins from her blood, at DaVita Woodlawn Dialysis clinic Thursday, April 5, 2018, in Chicago. As a child, Perry developed Lupus, resulting in damage to her kidneys. After doctors recently said her eligibility for a transplant is running out due to complicated health issues, Perry created a Facebook post asking people to contact her transplant team if they are able and willing to donate a kidney, otherwise she may be on dialysis for the rest of her life.
