Sonja Michelle Archie was a mother and a devoted Christian as well as an advocate, ambassador, and spokesperson for the Golden State Donor Services, which has been renamed Sierra Donor Services.  She also was a volunteer for National Kidney Foundation.


At the age of ten, Sonja was diagnosed with renal failure.  She received two successful kidney transplants, one from a brother.  After each transplant, she continued to accomplish and succeed her life dreams.


In her book, she talks about her transplants, marriage, divorce, employment, having a child, having to abort a child, her emotional and physical encounters during her sickness, and her spirituality.  Sonja tells how she overcame a series of obstacles.  


She did not let life’s ailments stop her from achieving her desires and goals.
