Fellow Queens members, My search for a donor continues without a lot of success. At present we’re zero for four. Asking for a donor to help save my life is not easy. I’ve struggled to overcome my reservations about putting myself out there. I’m a very private person and I’ve always handled everything that’s come my way. The last 10+ years of my career, I earned the reputation of being the guy who could fix almost any problem. The standing joke at work was “Got a problem? 1-800-CALL-GREG.” Brothers and Sisters…this time…I can’t fix this! I need your help. Donating a kidney may sound scary, and there are a lot of myths out there. The biggest myth is that it’s going to cost “you” as my donor a lot of money. This is not the case! All costs incurred are covered by my insurance, Medicare, and the University of Michigan. The best thing you can do is educate yourself. U of M holds many online classes for free on the process. You may think you can’t donate, but that’s for a medical professional to decide. I will say this: Once you start the process, you will get the absolute best physical you’ve ever had in your life. Will you at least consider calling U of M and starting the process? It’s just a phone call 800-333-9013.
