When Michelle Dalay Resuello, 27, found out she was suffering from stage 5 kidney failure, she was shocked. Looking back to that day in March 2016, she smiles and says: "I was having a routine physical as I was planning on working abroad and needed proof to show I was healthy.
"The doctors told me I had been born with one kidney and it was failing."
Little did she know how much her life would change. Within a few days of checking into the Northern Mindanao Medical Center in Cagayan de Oro, the Philippines, her body began to shut down.
