Gwendolyn Best is awaiting a new lease on life. In 2011, she was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. Over the years, her kidney function has declined and her illness has now progressed to stage-5. Gwendolyn is on dialysis, which leaves her tired and takes a toll on her quality of life. Doctors say a kidney transplant is critical.
