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 years old boy from Framingham, MA. Mitchell graduated from college in 2015 and he worked part-time at a dog day care. He was a healthy young man until a month before his 20th birthday.  Mitchell 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 -at 245/145-. After a number of tests, a CT scan and a biopsy, the doctors determined that Mitchell has stage IV Renal Failure -kidney disease. Now, Mitchell needs dialysis for 12 hours a week. And is hooked up with machines three times every week just to survive. 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, and many other articles with Mitchell’s picture to ask people to consider becoming kidney donors. 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 want to save a life?
