ABILENE, Texas — Shannon and Sandra Longoria have a mother-daughter bond that can withstand the toughest of hardships.
Shannon needs a kidney transplant, and this would be the second time.
"I had a transplant in 2009 and my older sister was a perfect match... But then it failed in 2016,” said Longoria.
The transplant failed and now its been 4 years with a new match nowhere to be found.
Shannon undergoes dialysis 3x a week 4hrs a day, which takes a toll on her. But she has the nonstop support from her daughter who will stop at nothing to keep a smile on her mom’s face and the search for her transplant.
"It came out of nowhere one night she was just so sad... She was tired. And I just looked at her ..went in my room cut up a cardboard box wrote it down and hung it outside" said Longoria.
A sign that has caught the generous hearts of those in the Big Country to offer to be tested with hopes of being her perfect match.
