Air Force & Army Veteran
Patricia (Pat) Ruffin is a 59-year-old proud mom of three, and Air Force and Army Veteran who worked for the Department of Defense for 30 years after her discharge from service.

Pat is an accomplished athlete and played and then coached for US Army sports teams around the world. Pat was the first female official for Army football!

Despite having end stage kidney failure and relying on dialysis to survive, Pat continues to work as a tennis coach and substitute teacher. 

She is a light for many on dialysis and during in-center treatments she sings and tries to make others smile.

Pat needs to find a kidney donor to have the best chance of living a life free from dialysis.
