Kidney donor needed (humanitarian request)

We have a humanitarian request on behalf of one our members.  Peter Stalgis, a Seattle Local 304 member, has a wife who is need of a kidney transplant. As you know, sometimes there can be a very long wait. That is why the local is appealing to all Federation members.

If you are interested in being a donor and you have Type O blood, contact Virginia Mason Hospital in Seattle at 1-800-354-9527, Ext. 11201, and tell them you want to be tested as a donor for Sue Stalgis. Peter says there will be no cost to you. He also asks if you are unable to be a donor, please pass this to other people who might be interested.

Someone interested in donating does NOT need to be a O blood type. Beign a blood type A may allow someone to be a donor. Also, getting involved in a paired kidney exchange is possible. To learn more about paired kidney exchanges go to: www.lkdn.org/LKDN_Paired_Exchanges.pdf or contact: harvey@lkdn.org
