STATUS:

Received - Deceased Kidney Donor 3/2024

Kimberly Morgan was a sophomore at the California Polytechnic State University when she decided to join the military like many of her family members. She started her career in the Army as a reservist and served eleven years, accumulating three years active duty in that time doing multiple temporary assignments. She started in Los Alamitos, CA as a 75 Delta, Personnel Records Specialist and as Retention NCO, and served in multiple other units in CA. Kimberly received training at the Department of Defense School located at Fort Harrison, IN and Fort Meade, MD where she became a certified 46 Romeo (Broadcast Journalist) and also had an opportunity to serve in Nuremberg, Germany.

Kimberly was diagnosed with lupus when she was 27 and while still serving. She was unable to be deployed, and the next five years was placed on the Temporary Disability Retired List (TDRL). There were hopes that treatments would allow her to control the effects of lupus and remain a soldier, which unfortunately did not happen, and she was medically retired.

Kimberly was also a full-time student obtaining a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology and Social Work, then moved on to receive a Master of Social Work Degree. As a civilian she served as an outpatient mental health therapist, and a supervisor for child and maternal health. Kimberly's kidney failure was brought on by the effects of her battle with lupus, but thankfully does not yet need dialysis. Even with all her health concerns, she is in the dissertation stage for completing her Doctorate of Clinical Psychology.

Kimberly has been married to her husband Kerry for 11 years and feels she has been blessed with two daughters and eight grandchildren from that union. She donates her time to the US Coast Guard Auxiliary and gets together with other ladies for a tea party in her town twice a month. She loves gardening, and knitting, mostly scarves and blankets. Will you help Kimberly complete her doctorate and continue her desire to help others by sharing her story and need for a kidney transplant, or even consider becoming her living kidney donor?

Kimberly has enlisted the help of a Veteran's organization called DOVE Transplant which is helping in his outreach to find her life-saving kidney donor. DOVE will assist all prospective donors throughout the process and make sure they do not incur any out-of-pocket expenses related to the evaluation or surgery.
