Just a few years ago I had to have a kidney removed. I was feeling sick and couldn’t eat or anything. My wife took me to the doctor and they had some labs drawn on me. Well the results came back that I had to have surgery and it was like within the next couple of weeks. I had to have a kidney removed. I’m passionate about my family. I have a strong love for football. I’ve known about my kidney failure for about 1 year now. Now I’m in need of a kidney. Without a kidney I may not live to enjoy my family. I have a lovely wife with 4 kids and 5 grandchildren.
I have been extremely tired. I sleep so much. I am scared I’ll miss out on my son being in college & playing football. Missing my grandchildren in school, sports and growing up to be Great young men and ladies. If I get a transplant I would have a 2nd chance at life to make it right. To be a great husband, father and grandfather.
I am seeking a living kidney donor to get a new start at life. I need help seeking a living donor to help me and my family. Please share with your family and friend’s to share with others. With all my love,
Lamont A Gray
If you are considering being a living donor please use links below to contact Lamont Gray's Transplant Center. Begin by completing the donor questionnaire
There are currently 120,000 people waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant in the U.S. Of these, 100,000 await kidney transplants.
The median wait time for a kidney transplant is 3-5 years and can vary depending on health, compatibility, and where you live.
In 2014, 17,107 kidney transplants took place in the U.S. Of these, 11,570 came from deceased donors and 5,537 came from living donors.
Every 14 minutes someone is added to the kidney transplant waitlist.
A kidney from a living donor lasts longer and begins functioning more quickly than a kidney from a deceased donor.
In 1995, kidney donation became minimally invasive with a procedure called laparoscopic nephrectomy, which only requires four small incisions. Hospital stay is typically only 3 days after this operation.
Not blood type compatible with your recipient to be a living donor? Kidney Paired Donation (the “kidney swap” program) enables incompatible candidates with a living donor to receive a kidney from a compatible donor.
Last year, over 700 living donor kidney transplants occurred using Kidney Paired Donation.
