Save a Life! Kevin McDonough from the was a cable splicer by profession and later the project supervisor of a power company, it was a high stress occupation with high blood pressure and diabetes. As a result, he was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease almost seven years ago. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is when the kidneys have become damaged over time (for at least 3 months) and have a hard time doing all their important jobs. CKD also increases the risk of other health problems like heart disease and stroke. 68-years-old Kevin is a father  of two daughters and a son. They have five grandchildren ranging in age from 2 to 18. Kevin McDonough has been on a deceased-donor list for several years, but a deep drop in his kidney function last October has now expanded his options to include living donors. If you have a desire to be an angel in good health with blood type ‘O’ and would like to save a life,  please  email or visit the Mass General Transplant Center online at for more information.  Anyone considering being Kevin’s living kidney donor can sign up as a potential living donor, by going to the link. Even if a candidate who wants to donate a kidney to a specific person finds that it’s not possible, a “swap program” allows the donor to donate on behalf of the person they originally hoped to help, and the original would-be recipient is bumped to the top of the transplant list. Can you give Kevin the gift of life? Please share your spare with Kevin.
