Henry E Green


" As much as I want to fight the good fight on my own, it’s no longer realistic without the help of others."

Hello again!

My name is Henry, and I am writing again because I am still in need of a kidney. In an earlier writing, I informed you that I have Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), a progressive disease that is causing my kidneys to lose their function. I inherited PKD from my father, who was in his 60s when PKD placed him on dialysis and eventually took his life. Several years ago, my doctor told me that it was time to start my journey towards finding a donor for a kidney transplant.

Kidney disease is a difficult condition that affects several bodily systems, and one’s overall quality of life. Now, as this disease continues to progress in me, there is a particular urgency in my quest to find a living kidney donor. My doctor says a living donor is needed because it is best and because the deceased donor kidney transplant waiting list is extremely long.

There are many goals I want to pursue before my time is through. I love spending time with family and friends, including my dog, Zeus, taking part in Church and community service activities, helping others, and traveling. Music is also one of my passions. I simply want to extend my time on this Earth to continue enjoying these and new avenues of interest. I want to see my small grandchildren grow up. That is why I am reaching out to you, praying that you would consider blessing me by donating a kidney. It is a difficult thing to outright ask you for your kidney—that is a very powerful and personal gesture—however, I would be truly grateful for such a selfless act.

There are very few, if any, health concerns associated with donating a kidney. Our bodies are designed such that we can live with only one healthy kidney. The health team at Medstar Georgetown Transplant Institute, consisting of surgeons, nephrologists, nurse coordinators, transplant immunologists, researchers, and social workers will conduct a very thorough health and physical workup to determine your healthiness to donate a kidney. If the health team finds that you can donate and are a suitable match, the procedure requires a day or so of hospitalization, followed by a short period of recovery. Afterwards, you would be able to resume your normal life and daily routines. Costs for the procedure, loss of wages, if any, will be covered by my insurance and other sources. To obtain more information and answers to questions about the living donor process, or to donate a kidney, please call (202) 444-3714 or go to:

You can help me fight this fight in other ways if you cannot donate:

1. Spread the word to your family and friends. Someone you know might be willing to serve as a donor. You can also share this message on social media.
2. Prayers and positive support are always welcomed and much appreciated.

Thank you for considering my request for help!
