Sorry I haven't update on here lately. The lady I spoke of several months ago about donating a kidney seems to have changed her mind. I know that it's a big decision to make. With that being said, I spoke with Rick a couple of days ago and his spirits are really good. Still waiting on that kidney, still needing $8,140 to make his goal of $10,000. I know he can reach it but it's going to take a lot of help. Please let's get together and do what it takes to help him.

So last night I received an email from an angel in Maryland. She is wanting to donate a kidney to Rick Greene! She saw the news story on him and it touched her. We both (myself and Rick) have spoken with this lady several times today. She contacted MUSC and they are sending her the
Starting paperwork to get the process started. She is O+ and that's what he needs! There have been so many different signs that this is a blessing. 1st, her birthday is the day before Ricks, 2nd her maiden name is Moore which y'all know is my last name, 3rd she is going to be traveling thru SC next month to see her husband who is in the military, and lastly she is also an EMT/firefighter. So to all the prayer warriors out there I ask you all to say an extra prayer that everything works and say a prayer for this wonderful angel whose name is Brooke.

We got some great news today! Michelle Frizalone with WLTX news 19 got in touch with me and is wanting to do a story on Rick!!! She has spoken to him also and will be meeting with him this afternoon!! Please pray that his story touches the lives of others and we can get him the
Funds he needs. Rick is at dialysis now and sounded pretty drained but he sure did perk up when I told him the news.

Rachel thank you so much for putting this site together. Rick Greene is one of the most giving, careing, guy I know. I started Ems as a driver while I was in basic met class. I then went on to internists and finally paramedic class with the kind drive from rick saying Beth you can do it. I wouldn't have gotton as far as I did without him. He took time between calls to help me get through the 9month accelerated class. He is a loving father and husband . You dont find people everyday that wld give you the shirt off your back these days, but rick would to anyone. He worked as a medic because he loves to help people. I saw it everyday. I want to him to see his kids graduate, go to collage, get married , have kids of their own and for him to b their for carol as she as always stood by him. My husband and I are trying to set up a boot drive . I'll post the date asap because the sooner he gets his transplant he can continue to give back to the community as he always works more than one job. He gives so much of himself to anyone that needs him. I am blessed to have him as a friend. Glad I found the site. Thank you Rachel. Sincerely Beth Rizner.

As a fellow Paramedic I know we don't bring home enough to do more than make ends meet. I too am in need of funds for my Special Needs Granddaughter, but I will find this if I have to eat peanut butter for a week. Our prayers are with you Rick. And I will share your link on my Facebook Page.

As long as this is up, I will make a monthly contribution. Here is #2. Having a firefighter / paramedic son (now medically retired) receive a kidney from his sister, I know how important this is for Rick, his family and loved ones. I don't know Rick, but we are all tied to each other and need to lend a helping hand whenever we can.
