A Jackson State University student survived COVID-19, but the effects from it have left her in another life-threatening battle. Trianda Plummer received a kidney transplant when she was 11.
She said that all she wants to do is finish her last year at JSU. "They eventually told me your kidneys have been severely affected by covid-19 and you're going to have to be placed on dialysis until you find a kidney, so I've been battling all of that for pretty much the year," Plummer said. For now, Plummer is back at home in Georgia on dialysis, but she is not alone.
