Kathryn Glover, 38, from Ballygowan, had a kidney transplant in 2009.
Kathryn is sharing her story to highlight the importance of organ donation.
“I am a teacher in Cedar Integrated Primary School, Crossgar. I teach 29 Primary 3 children and I love going to school every day – no school day is ever the same. I love watching the children learn and having that lightbulb moment where things just make sense.
“In 2003, I found blood in my urine and, quite quickly after that, I was diagnosed with IgA nephropathy. I was then put on the transplant list.
