PITTMAN INITIATIVE FOR NINA Pittman’s Initiative for Nina’s Kidney (PINK)Pittman’s Initiative for Nina’s Kidney (PINK)

As parents, we are often faced with many challenges as we raise our children. My husband and I like so many other parents pray daily for God’s grace and mercy upon the live of our children. We have been blessed with three beautiful children: two daughters Nina and Jalina, and one son Amore Bute’. We give thanks to our Lord and Savior Jesus for allowing us to be their parents.

The summer of 2001, our first born Nina was diagnosed with SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus) LUPUS, at the age of 13. Nina is now 22-years-old, challenges, disappointment, victories, and miracles are the foundation of her living testimony.

It is Nina’s desire to become a pediatric Neonatal Surgeon; highlighted with working deligently to achieve the title Surgeon General of the United States. The challenges of living with LUPUS have delayed her mission of securing her BA degree in order to move on to medical school. However, she has not abandoned her dreams and goals.

Today, the challenge that Nina faces is the need for a new kidney — a Kidney Transplant. Since 2011, Nina has been on the waiting list of the National Kidney Donor Registry, unfortunately, Nina’s need for a new kidney has upgraded to a URGENT status. Our family members and friends, who have been willing to donate their kidney, unfortunately were not medically cleared to do so.

“Yet ye have not, because ye ask not”, are the words that I hear more and more as I pray about the situation she is facing. Being a family that embraces the bible verse Ephesians 3:20, Now unto him {God] is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. And furthermore, who trusts and believes God has aligned that one special individual who is willing to answer to the call of this mission.

It is in the name of Jesus, that we reach out to you our neighbors, making our plea that each of you to search your heart and soul, to determine if God has called you to be the one who is has been predestined to be Nina’s donor. We the Pittman Family thank you for reading our appeal. And we pray that everyone who reads this will be in good health and that you will always have the favor of God upon your life.

For more information, please contact Jackson Memorial Transplant Unit Referrals- (305) 355-5168. When you call you must state you would like to donate to Nina Nicole Pitt-man. Also, you may contact the Pittman Family at (954) 445-0244 or via email at pbeasleypittman@yahoo.
