Mission Appeal – Mindy Lam

Like so many of us, Mindy put herself and her health on the back burner while she tirelessly worked growing her successful jewelry business and building a life for her daughter Kai. But in the three years following her kidney disease diagnosis, Mindy and her daughter lost almost everything she had worked so hard for. As Mindy’s health continued to decline, Kai wasn’t about to let Kidney Disease take her mom, too – donating her own kidney when she turned 19 to get her mom’s health back on track.
