Eleven Year Old Ohio Boy Needs a Kidney

Skylar Gordon is an 11 year old boy with a problem that is becoming much too common today. He needs a kidney.

Skylar is battling Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) which is a particularly nasty  and aggressive disease that scars your kidneys to the point that it leads to symptoms of nephrotic syndrome.

He has type O blood and if you are interested in being a donor (remember you don’t necessarily need to be a blood match to donate), contact the Cincinatti Childrens’ Hospital at (513) 636-7201.
