I just got this message from fellow author Stefani Barner who needs help:
"Since we've officially hit the point where we can start looking for (& slowly testing) potential kidney donors for Rory, I thought that the easiest way to get the information about donation out to everyone would be through a website.
Of course, it's only mostly helpful, since I still have to get .pdf versions of the actual donor paperwork, LOL, but in the meantime, it's an easy way for people to get the information about how to help him out with either living donation
in some other way. By the end of this week, I hope to have the pre-donor screening forms available to print off as well. There are two purposes here: 1) to get information about living kidney donation to those who might be willing to donate and 2) to get information about what ELSE we need to our friends & family who have been asking. This is NOT a blog, solicitation website (other than the aforementioned living kidney donors & family inquiries), or place to get updates on how Rory is doing. It's a very targeted appeal to potential organ donors & a place to get information about Rory's Chronic Kidney Disease & treatment. So...if you would be so kind, please pass along this website to your various address books, groups & elists, so that we can spread the message of living kidney donation (for Rory and for everyone) far and wide. :-) The website is:
Easy to remember, fairly simple once you're there, but potentially life-saving for our little boy. Please bookmark it, check it out and pass it along.
