A New Life For Sara

Sara Laing, from Moorside, Sunderland, is 15 years old and was diagnosed with Cystinosis at 18 months. The Cystinosis damaged her kidneys leading to their failure 7 and a half years ago, and since then Sara has undergone dialysis three time a week, every week. However, Sara has recently been given a transplant and her Mum has since nominated her for a Echo Pride of Wearside award after her bravery and the support she offered fellow transplant patients whilst in hospital.
