Why my family members cannot donate to me

In her explanation in the Instagram post, Sonai said she had to drop out of her masters studies at the University of Newcastle due to the ailment.

Sonia explained that her family members are willing to donate a kidney to her but that doctors have advised against it because her condition is genetic. She said a family donor may result in a recurrence in the future.

She made it clear that anyone willing to donate to her must do that out of compassion in accordance with the law guiding such donations.

"I'm alive today all by the special grace of God. I'm presently in London, UK receiving 5 hours of dialysis 3 times a week. This is at the expense of my family."
