Please check out this website I created for my brother, Alfred Klein who is in stage 5 kidney disease. Please like my page Saving Alfie With a Kidney Donor. Both our parents were survivors of the concentration camps. My dad passed away 10 years ago but my mom is going strong still. She is vivacious and loves life. She does not know my brother's precarious life situation. We fear if he does not get a Donor and dies that it would kill her. He was born in a Displaced persons camp in Stuttgart, Germany on 10/22/46. My mom lost an entire family. She was liberated by the British from Bergen Belsen on 4/15/45 and had Typhus which is what killed Anne Frank who she fed there. My dad had 2 sisters who also survived. Please post the website and like the page in hopes that an incredible mensch will step forward to donate a kidney since we only need one to live. He is A positive. There is also the pair exchange which would take donated kidney and give him his match when available. Please spread the word to help us reach as many people as possible. The website and Saving Alfie With a Kidney Donor page illustrates the beloved person he is.
