Medicine Hat teen celebrates kidney anniversary

Christina Douvis has been through a lot in her young life. She was only 9 years old when diagnosed with a rare genetic form of kidney disease. Both of her kidneys failed, dropping her kidney function to six percent, and forcing her to spend eight weeks at Alberta Children’s Hospital. After an exhausting series of tests, the medical team determined that Christina needed surgery to remove both of her kidneys. She received several blood transfusions, allowing her to come home to Medicine Hat, and return to school while taking medications, and doing dialysis.

Christina, Nick, Spiro & Voula Douvis

Four years after the rollercoaster of kidney disease consumed their daily lives, the Douvis family had cause for celebration: Christina’s mom Voula donated a kidney to her daughter in January 2016. These days, Christina is a happy 15-year-old in her first year of high school, doing piano recitals and playing badminton. “It is a daily miracle,” says Voula. “She is an angel in our house. And we are so grateful every day that she is doing so well.”
 
Local family to drop the puck to celebrate organ donation at Medicine Hat Tigers hockey game

When Cassidy Creasy drops the puck at the Tigers game her mom, who is also her kidney donor, will be at her side. Sandy Creasy donated a kidney to her daughter three years ago after Cassidy’s kidneys were damaged by e-coli when she was seven years old.
The Medicine Hat family is celebrating Sandy’s kidney donation to Cassidy at a special Tigers game to shine the spotlight on organ donation. Cassidy is now 18 years old, and a first year engineering student at the University of Calgary.
