Bri Needs A Kidney: Fundraiser For Wny Woman In Need Of Organ Donor

Tonight, a community rallied around Brianna Dejo, a local young woman in urgent need of a kidney transplant after complications led to the failure of her first transplant. At the Coyote Cafe in Hamburg, hundreds of family members, friends, and neighbors gathered to raise awareness about Brianna’s situation and encourage people to get tested to see if they could be a match.

Brianna shared her journey, expressing the challenges she has faced due to her illness, particularly in the last four years. Despite her resilience, the toll of dialysis treatments four times a week and subsequent days of immobility has taken its toll, highlighting the urgency of finding a kidney donor.

The event aimed to raise funds to support Brianna’s ongoing healthcare costs, with 100% of the proceeds dedicated to her medical expenses. Those interested in helping Brianna find a kidney can find more information on how to get involved on the website wgrz.com.
