Jeffrey Olko


My name is Jeff Olko, and I am hoping to find a kidney donor.

Chronic kidney disease is a problem that I have been dealing with for 34 years. Unfortunately, over time my kidney disease has continued to progress to the extent that I will need a second kidney transplant. After receiving one from a live donor in 2011, and having 8 great years off of dialysis, the kidney unfortunately failed in 2019. The effects and treatments required to combat it have been a constant stress on my mind, body, and soul.

Along with frequent office visits, I have been on dialysis to maintain my health while waiting for a donor along with supporting myself and my family. This treatment often leaves me feeling tired and makes it difficult to do the things I enjoy, like spending time with my family, boating, and enjoying what life has to offer.

I look forward to the day that I can get my normal life back. It would be a blessing to be able to be spend more time with the family whilst traveling to enjoy life without the constant concerns for my health.

I am on the waiting list for a kidney, however that can often take years to get a match. I am hoping to find a living donor to get back to a normal life that I can enjoy with my family. I would be grateful if you could help me find a match by getting tested or sharing this information with your own network of friends, family and community.

I sincerely thank you,
Jeff Olko
