Jonathan Byrd took to Twitter Monday night in hopes of finding an organ donor for his mother, Jo, who is battling kidney disease.
“Her best possible option is to find a living donor with O positive or O negative blood type,” Byrd said in a video posted to Twitter. “Up to this point, she’s had 12 friends and family come forward to donate their kidney but unfortunately no one has been approved a match yet. This would greatly improve her quality of life.”
He goes on to ask anyone watching to consider becoming an organ donor for his mother or anyone else in need. Byrd shares the numbers of the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston and Augusta University Hospital. If anyone is interested in helping, they should contact these hospitals and ask for the donation coordinator.
