Sal Needs A Kidney. Please help!

Christas words: My name is Christa, my husband Sal and i have 4 beautiful children ages 3-15. Unfortunately my first born son Sal (in this photo here) was born in 1998 with a Kidney Disease known as Displacia, which both kidneys are abnormal and do not function with out taking medication on a daily basis. Every 2-3 months since birth has been to Stony Brook University, Schneiders Children's Hospital, and now NYU Manhattan. Unfortunately at this time he is in need of a Kidney Transplant. On Monday 4/7/14, was our first visit to to see a team of surgeons at Mt. Sinai Transplant Hospital in Manhattan and was informed that due to Sals past and current medical condition they advise dialysis is not an option at this time. He must go for several tests in the next few weeks to be considered for a Kidney Donor List which is a year or more of waiting list. Therefore, we are reaching out to friends, family, and so on who will be willing to be a Live Donor willing to help Sal in his time of need since time is of the essence. Any one who is 18 years or older, healthy, with a blood type of O+ please contact Mrs. Montgomery Davis at Mt. Sinai Recanati/Miller Transplant Hospital at [phone redacted]. Please note all information is and will be confidential. All medical expenses will be taken care of. Please say recipent Salvatore M. Marinello date of birth is 11/25/98. My family and I will like to take this time to Thank you for taking the time to read this post that we provided in behalf of my sons illness to help him with a miracle to live a normal and healthy life that he never had an opportunity to have. We would greatly appreciate any help or support you can give our family at this time of need. Please feel free pass this on to anyone who you may know or re-post Thank you again!!!! xoxoxo
