Man begs for kidney on street
Begger born with genetic disease
Last Updated: 323 days ago
An Oregon man begging on the side of the road isn't asking for change this morning, he's asking for a kidney.
The 28-year-old was born with a genetic disease and has been receiving dialysis treatments four hours a day, three times for a year and a half.
He's been on a waiting list for a new kidney for more than a year.
But he says he feels hopeful and that he's standing on the street not just for the kidney, but also to raise awareness for others who might need a transplant.
