Please Pass Along….Huntersville Resident Needs A Kidney

Here is some text created by the National Foundation for Transplants.

From the National Foundation for Transplants:

What if you were living on borrowed time?

Huntersville resident Jeffrey Rifkin is fighting for his life. In the late 1990s, just months after his daughter was born, he was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). Sadly, his mother, aunt and grandfather passed away from this disease, and he has two cousins and a sibling currently battling PKD. Because of his illness, Jeffrey often experiences extreme fatigue and nausea. Doctors have told him a kidney transplant is critical to his survival.

Jeffrey, a loving husband and father of four, is saddened that his children have seen his health decline so much over the years. He once loved to exercise and play the bass guitar but no longer has the energy to enjoy these activities. Jeffrey is a marriage and family therapist who has spent many years counseling individuals, couples and families, and he loves his work. Although his illness makes it difficult, he continues his practice because he is devoted to helping others. He loves his role as a husband and father more than anything else, and he wants to spend many more years with his family. But he needs your help.  If you have a blood type of B or O, you may be a match.

If you want to help out Mr. Rifkin, please contact me a and I will pass along, or reach out to Mr. Rifkin via Facebook. Jeff-Amanda Rifkin.

Thank you all in advance.
