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!
