LYNN, Mass. (AP) – A Massachusetts woman in need of a new kidney has put up a billboard in search of a donor.
"Young mother needs a type of kidney blood O" is the poster by Miranda LeBrasseur.
The 42-year-old Lynn woman has been diabetic since the age of 17 and is suffering from genetic kidney disease. The Daily Item reports that she set up the billboard after a fundraiser in January because she's on a five to six-year waiting list for a new kidney. LeBrasteur says she has been on the transplant list since June 2016.
The mother-of-two says she's on hemodialysis three days a week.
The billboard will not be released until April 28, but LeBrasseur says their website and fundraising will not stop until she finds a game.
