DC NITELIFE IS SPOTLIGHTING THE INSPIRATIONAL STORY OF CASSANDRA JACKS
DC Nitelife is spotlighting Cassandra Jacks who is a walking miracle and an inspiration to others.
Please check out this video about Ms. Jacks.
Cassandra Jacks is a 46 year old woman who is fighting through her 2nd kidney transplant after failure of the first kidney transplant. In 2000, she received her first kidney from her mother and in 2011, she received her 2nd kidney from her sister.
Cassandra has been a Type 1 juvenile diabetic since age 12 and has pushed through all illnesses to have two great children and a career with the Federal Government. She has helped numerous people with her experience with kidney failure to deal with their illness and ask questions to determine their own medical treatments with the doctors. INova Fairfax Kidney Transplant Center on different occasions has asked her to talk to patients about her experiences on Hemodialysis, Peritoneal Dialysis and the new medication with treatments to assist them with making an informative decision regarding their own treatment plan and course of action for their life. In her experience with kidney failure, Cassandra Jack is always willing to help and educate others on anything that may help them in their daily lives.
Now, in her time of need, she has two friends – Andre Wallace and Caesar Kelly who have come forward to get tested to be a living kidney donor. It’s a lot of money, medication and time given for this procedure and at this time the doctor has totally taken Cassandra Jacks out of work. With the stress of everyday life, this is a very difficult time for her but through it all, she is such a positive person and has been a major inspiration to others. Life is short but she has the grace to know we have to be grateful for each and everyday and to know we ALL need each other in this phenomena we call LIFE..
