31-year-old Langford mom looking for second kidney donor after first transplant failed (SPH)
Drielle Tousignant is a 31-year-old mother to 10-year-old Logan who will soon spend several hours every day on kidney dialysis.
Tousignant was living an active life when she came down with strep throat in 2013. She was put on antibiotics but when she tried to return to her job as a care aid she knew something was seriously wrong.
In May, both women went to St. Paul’s hospital in Vancouver for the transplant but not long after waking up from surgery Tousignant knew something was wrong.
