Since we first took our plea to find a living donor for my father public in October, we have continued to be amazed and humbled by the goodwill, generosity, kindness, and support we’ve received. In person, over the phone, and over social media, you have helped us spread the word, encouraged us, and given us hope.
Truly, the outpouring has been incredible—there is a long waiting list of people interested in donating a kidney to my father.
It has been a difficult few months and time has not been our side, but we are so grateful to announce that a living donor match has been found from that list, and a kidney transplant is scheduled for March 12. We cannot begin to express our gratitude to the donor and the donor’s family for this most amazing gift: a second chance at life.
It will be a long road yet, and in the coming weeks, we ask for your continued good thoughts and prayers for my father and our family, the donor and the donor’s family, and the surgical and medical teams who will be caring for both of them. Thank you so much!
