KIDNEY STORIES: PLEASE HELP FIND A KIDNEY FOR MY DAD

 

 
Our dad has Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) and needs a kidney transplant. He needs a donor who has blood type B or O. To see if you are a match, call Pam Grubbs at the Medical College of Georgia toll free, 1-800-736-2273.
Description
Our dad, Dwight Mosby Sr., was diagnosed with a genetic condition called polycystic kidney disease (PKD) in 2004. There is currently no cure for PKD; his best treatment option is for the diseased kidneys to be removed and for a healthy kidney to be transplanted.
Dwight is a Vietnam veteran who served his country for 30 years; retiring in 1996 at the rank of Sergeant Major. He is a husband, father…, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend to many.
PKD is a kidney disorder passed down through families in which many cysts form in the kidneys, causing them to become enlarged. About 1 in 1,000 people in the U.S. are affected. The disease gets worse slowly, eventually leading to end-stage kidney failure
If you know of someone who may be interested in donating one of their healthy kidneys to our dad, they can speak to Pam Grubbs, RN, Transplant Coordinator at MCG (Medical College of Georgia) Hospital.  She will answer any questions, assess their potential donor status, arrange for testing to see if they are a viable candidate, all at no cost to the donor candidate.  If they are compatible and are willing to donate, the procedure and recovery are at no cost to the donor. Pam Grubbs may be reached toll free by calling 1-800-736-2273 or locally via 706-721-8560 or 706-721-2888. All inquiries remain confidential.
Dwight’s blood type is B+, he needs a donor who is either type B or O.
We appreciate your willingness to save our dad’s life by finding out if you would be a suitable donor, by sharing this page with your friends and family, and/or by offering your prayers and words of encouragement.
