“Need a kidney, type 0. Share Your Spare.” That’s what Daniel McLaughlin of Moncton had in the back of his car.
Diagnosed with chronic kidney failure in 1994, Daniel McLaughlin began home dialysis treatments in 2016. Every day, his blood needs to be cleaned for 8 hours.
His wife wants to give him a kidney, but she is not part of the same blood group.
More than a year ago, the couple joined Canadian Blood Services’ Kidney Cross Donation Program to be paired with another couple who were compatible with their blood type.
For my blood type, the wait is on average from 5 to 7 years.
Hoping to find a dealer sooner, Daniel McLaughlin took the initiative himself to write a message in the back of his car.
If he can find a donor through this initiative, he still thinks to keep the poster to give more visibility to this cause. He hopes to be able to stimulate discussions and inform people through this message.
The photo of his car has been shared many times on social networks.
