I suddenly need a kidney.
Honestly, I don't know any other way to word it. My kidney condition has worsened considerably over the past few months and I'm now looking at needing a transplant within 3 to 6 months. I want to be around for my wife Rachel and daughter for a long time, so this is necessary. Plus, I like life, it's fun! Death is lame, don't make me do it. (Jokes are my coping mechanism)
We will enter my name on the transplant list, but that tends to take a year or more to find a donor. Instead, there are two better options: I find a kind, healthy person willing to donate directly or indirectly through the kidney exchange network (it depends on your blood group). My blood type is A positive and my birthday is 06/12/1970 (you need this for the donor form).
If you are that person, please contact me!
