21-Year-Old Needs A Living Kidney Donor

Mitchell
It's every mom's worst nightmare when your child needs life saving help. Mitchell Webster is a 21-year- old young man from Framingham, MA. Mitchell graduated from college in 2015, he's also worked part-time at a dog day care. He was a healthy young man until just before a month before his 20th birthday.  Mitchell got got up in the night and began vomiting out of nowhere. When the problem persisted for more than a week, he visited his doctor. Mitchell’s blood pressure was extraordinarily high which was 245/145.  After a number of tests, a CT scan and a biopsy, the doctors after three days determined that Mitchell has stage IV renal failure - kidney disease. Now, Mitchell needs dialysis for 12 hours in a week. Mitchell is hooked up with the machines for three times every week for his survival. Mitchell Webster needs a living kidney donor with type A or type O blood to go back to his normal life. His mother, created a facebook page, has made bumper stickers for her car and printed a set of car magnets, which are affixed to the doors of her Jeep. They feature pictures of the 21-year-old, and ask people to consider becoming kidney donors. But after months of effort, the family’s search to find a donor for Mitchell continues. “Every month I kind of think, like, this is the month that I get the kidney,” Mitchell said. Are you in good health and have the desire to save a life? If you answered yes, contact UMass Memorial Live Donor Kidney Transplant program @ 508-334-1269 . Click here https://www.facebook.com/matchingmitchell/posts/980411665474281 for more information.
