People are motivated to lose weight for all kinds of reasons, but for Dawn Muhammad, it was all about helping her dad. The Atlanta woman hired a trainer and spent 16 months working to drop 55 pounds so she could become a kidney donor for her father.
Dawn’s dad, Lucious Daniels, has stage-four kidney failure and endures dialysis twice a week. She found out her blood type made her a potential match for her father, but her body mass index was too high for her to be considered. So she got to work and lost the weight and she recently shared the real reason for her transformation with her family.
On July 2nd Dawn got the call she had been waiting for, telling her that she was a perfect match with her father. Now the daughter and dad are scheduled for surgery August 31st. She says, “I’m very happy to be able to help my father have normalcy in his life.”

Dawn Muhammad is an inspiration and has one proud papa (he is literally beaming at her). I wish them both safe surgeries and swift recoveries. https://t.co/GthuO6s9Ck— QueenMedb (@medb_queen) August 22, 2018
