My name is Lamar, and I am asking for your help to save my life.
I'm a Vietnam Veteran. I was the first black Air Traffic Controller at Chicago O'Hare airport for ten years. I'm very community oriented and i n 2000 the Village of Bellwood name a major street after me "Honorary Richardson Drive. My current business is helping 100's of young people find employment.
I have two successful sons who I have a solid relationship with they are very concerned about my health challenge. My first wife of 30 years passed due to an aneurism.
I've been informed by my kidney doctor that my kidney is at a critical failure stage. I'm desperately trying to identify a living donor before I have to go on dialysis. I must find a living donor as soon as possible.
I have asked and no one in my family has volunteered.
The doctor told me that my physiological body is that of a 60-year-old. I exercise daily and I watch what I eat. I have a positive attitude and know that I can keep servicing my community once I receive a transplant.
Living donor transplants generally have better outcomes and can be arranged at a time convenient for both parties. No waiting and wondering while my body continues to weaken. More so, this surgery is covered for both the donor and the recipient under my health insurance!
If you have any questions or concerns about the living donation process in any aspect, please sign up for the American Transplant Foundation's Potential Living Donor Database and we can provide you with any resources you may need, including speaking with a living organ donor directly.
I would appreciate you sharing this information with anyone that you know who might be interested or a match.
Thank you so much for your consideration!
