‘If you can’t see through it, don’t dive into it!’

Nearly three years ago, Council Rock South graduate, Lauren Shevchek, then only 19-years-old, suffered a severe spinal cord injury after diving into the dark, unlit waters of a black bottom pool.

A streamlined dive was second nature to the competitive swimmer, lifeguard and water polo player, yet ironically she became another victim to a preventable, life-altering injury. Paralyzed as a quadriplegic, from the chest down, she’s been given a 1% chance of ever walking again.

But paralysis robs one of much more than the inability to be ambulatory; some vital internal organs also suffer and cannot function on their own.

Father-son duo lead Ninth Annual Kidney Walk in Central New Jersey

Three years ago, Stockton resident Kevin Losch was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy and end stage renal failure. After months on dialysis and failed matches among his family, Kevin sent an e-mail out to his closest friends asking them if they would consider donating their kidney.

Over 100,000 people in the United States are waiting for a kidney transplant; fewer than 17,000 people receive one each year and New Jersey’s seven-year transplant waiting list had Kevin discouraged and depressed.

“I made sure to state in the e-mail that those that couldn’t donate were not obligated to respond,” explained Kevin. “I wasn’t looking for anyone to feel bad for me. But within 45 minutes, my college roommate responded saying he’s willing to get tested and go from there.”
