Type O Kidney Needed

Jason has polycystic kidney disease, a genetic disease which causes cysts to grow on kidneys and liver, causing kidney failure. He is currently on the transplant list at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL. It is expected to take 8 years to get a transplant from a cadaver kidney so we we're trying to find a living donor with an O blood type kidney. Jason is unable to work, being too sick, and medical bills, insurance premiums, co-pays and medications are astronomical. In the next few months, over the holiday season, we are traveling to Ochsner in New Orleans, Emory in Atlanta, UAB in Birmingham, Tampa and Pensacola for more rigorous testing, in order to be placed on their transplant list for more opportunities in other area to receive a kidney. Travel, lodging, meals, missed wages all build up. We thank you for thinking of us at this time. It's a long journey, and we are only a year in.
