    Plea for help..

    My step father Geoff was diagnosed with kidney failure two years ago. He has been on peritoneal dialysis, at home, since then. He has been fortunate enough to be able to continue working and has a very understanding and accommodating employer who allows him to take time off work without pay (only so many sick days per year) to fly to Vancouver once a month or so for treatment.

    If he ends up having to do hemodialysis, he will have to quit his job and move to a location that offers this necessity as our Territory does not.

    His health is steadily declining, he is getting thinner, weaker, more tired. Psychologically it's almost like he's starting to give up. I am sending out this plea for anyone who is looking to really make a difference. Not in just one person's life, but an entire family's. So far no members of his very large biological family have come forward.

    There is a recently launched Living Donor Paired Exchange Registry which greatly increases the chances of kidney patients finding a match. You can read more about this program here:

    Please pass this message along to everyone you know and thank you for taking the time to care.
