KIDNEY STORIES: SEARCH FOR A KIDNEY DONOR FOR BRAD

This Facebook page is an attempt to broaden our search for a kidney donor for my husband, Brad Weeman. While we’ve been intensely private about Brad’s situation thus far, we are becoming more desperate to find a donor.
Description
My husband Brad suffers from Chronic Renal Failure and in July 2011, he entered stage 5 renal failure and had to begin dialysis. Brad is officially on the cadaver kidney transplant list for MA/New England, with an average wait of 5 years. If Brad were to find a living donor, that wait would be immediately eliminated.
We have been intensely private about Brad’s situation, but at this point we ha…ve decided we need to broaden our search to as many channels as possible. Therefore, we have created this Facebook page in an effort to find someone with blood type O who might be interested in being a donor for Brad. We would greatly appreciate your consideration in this matter, even if it’s to just “share” this page and spread the word.
For those with questions and/or those of you who would like to move forward with being tested, I have listed the donor transplant coordinator Kristen’s contact information below. You can also contact me or Brad with questions, and access additional information on donation on the NKF’s website.
Thank you, Meredith and Brad Weeman meredithlaurabrown@gmail.com
