In 2017, Kylie Newsome, right, was diagnosed with Goodpasture’s Syndrome, an autoimmune disease that has left the 24 year old in need of a kidney transplant. Both her sister, Amanda Whobrey, left, and mother, Tonya Lindsay, center, are unable to be a donor for Newsome. Lindsay recently started a social media campaign in hopes of finding a donor.

At 23 years old, Kylie Newsome was a young, care-free girl dreaming of what her future might someday be. Little did she know, her life was about to change forever.
The 2012 graduate of Owen County High School had moved to Kansas City, Kansas in 2017 to be closer to friends and decide what path she wanted to take in life.
But persistent pain and fatigue had begun to slow her down. She believed her condition was a kidney infection and ignored the symptoms as best she could thinking it would go away on its own.
