I cannot say enough about Darvece and her organization! They instill so much hope, light, and inspiration into EVERYONE and make it impossible not to succeed. No excuses is not only a mindset, but it is a way of life. Darvece taught Me that and More Than Your Kidneys acts on it!

Everyone works diligently to connect with the patients, family members, and loved ones--and they work hard to positively affect the community.

I believe that everything happens for a reason, and when you understand your purpose, nothing can get in the way of your destiny. I applied for the Women's 1919 Entrepreneurship cohort at Blue 1647 knowing I didn't have the $50 investment-in-myself fee. But I didn't want to miss out on this opportunity to be around women like myself, bringing their dreams of self-employment to life. So I reached out to Allyson Scrutchens, explained my situation in hopes that I could pay the fee later. I never thought that the positive intentions I put forth would come back with receiving a scholarship from Darvece Monson's More Than Your Kidneys non-profit organization. I actually cried behind the scene. I'm forever grateful to Darvece! A strong woman paving the way in entrepreneurship! Now my dreams of owning a prosthetic limb company, AK Prosthetics, are coming to fruition. Thank you More Than Your Kidneys!
God is definitely guiding your life. There needed to be a passionate, beautiful, brilliant, and self confidant champion and advocate for kidney health and organ donor awareness and you my dear are "the chosen one". #godspeed
