Yesterday on the show, we talked about a guy who is in need of a kidney donation
, so while at Disney World, he wore a shirt advertising his blood type giving his contact information. After we talked about that story, listener Tim in Maine sent us the following email:

Subject: Kidney donor story
I've been a fan of the show since 2009!
I saw your story today about the man who advertised his need of a kidney donor through his T-shirt, and I HAD to share another story with you in hopes you can help me out.
My good friend Rick Stilphen has been looking for a kidney donor for several years. I never realized how hard it is to find a match until I saw his struggle. He does regular dialysis several times a week, and never loses faith that he will find a donor someday.
Rick advertises on his car. See the attached photo. He has been doing this for several years, and his story was even picked up by a local Portland news station.
It would be awesome if you guys could maybe mention this on your show and maybe put this photo on your website and/or Facebook page as well. You guys reach a massive audience, and the more people that know this story, the better his chances are of finding a match.
Thank you so much, I really appreciate you reading this!
So please, share this! If you or someone you know is able to help in any way, please get in contact with Rick! Let's make this happen!
