In June of 2013, then-38-year-old Sabina Agha was diagnosed with a degenerative auto-immune kidney disease. Eight months later, she began receiving a less invasive dialysis treatment, but would ultimately need to undergo hemodialysis to clean the waste and toxins from her blood.
At the beginning of 2017, Agha started the hemodialysis procedure. It was also then that she decided to accept the ultimate gift from her 22-year-old daughter, Amarah Agha.
