Need A Kidney Now!

My cousin Kevin Hall is in need of a kidney. He was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and he is in the final stages of kidney failure. He needs a kidney donor ASAP. Kevin will begin dialysis on March 27 pending the results of a heart catheterization. He needs a healthy donor ages 18-50 years with type O- or O+ with NO MEDICAL CONDITIONS (High blood pressure, diabetes, etc.). Unfortunately, there are no family members that are a definite match.

Kevin is my cousin, but he and his twin brother Kerry have always looked after me like a sister, so I am appealing to you all to help us spread the word and for your prayers.

Kevin is a devoted husband and father of 6.

He is a graduate of Flint Northern c/o 87. He played football for Northern and Semi-pro for the Columbus, Ohio Fire football team.

    I am looking for articles in health magazines in Canada, or all of North America , regarding kidney transplant. My husband was recently diagnosed with kidney failure. His kidneys operate at 5% only.
    He is registered on the BC Transplant list, but we know there are no guarantees.
    My husband is a young man, he is only 43 years old, and he has so much life to live, with us, as a family. We need him.
    He operates his own business, and has had to cut his days down to 5-6 hours instead of 8 or 10. I help out as much as I can, but I work also, so I can only help him on my days off.
    I would gladly donate my kidney to him but I am not a blood match. He has O+ Blood. I have AB- Blood.
    I am posting ads everywhere, on Craigs list, on kijiji also. I have also joined the kidney facebook pages. I spend alot of time thinking of imaginative ways to word “kidney donor needed for my husband” on line, to find different web sites and contacts. I am doing everything I can do to save this man.
    I am looking for a magazine that is willing to print his story, maybe the right person will read it and we can find him a transplant and save his life. If you are interested in publishing his story, please email me back and let me know. I will be happy to give you more information.
    Thank you for reading my email.
    Like I said, he is a young man, and we need him.

    I am so sorry to hear about Kevin and I will keep him in my prayers. If he needs blood I am O+ but I have existing medical conditions so let me know if he needs blood.

    I grew up with Kevin & Kerry. I lived on Genesee Street next door to their grandparents. I am unable to donate a kidney, nor do I know anyone who is, but I will keep him and his family lifted in prayer. Please let him know that the Adams Family will be praying for him.
