Looking for a kidney transplant


My name is Chuck Samples, and I am hoping to find a kidney donor.

Chronic kidney disease is a problem that I have been dealing with for about 5 years. Unfortunately, over time my kidney disease has continued to progress to the extent that I will need a kidney transplant. The effects and treatments required to combat it have been a constant stress on my mind, body, and soul.

Since August 2020, I’ve been doing dialysis, attending frequent doctor visits and experiencing declining health. This treatment often leaves me feeling tired and makes it difficult to do the things I enjoy, like spending time with family and being active, doing things like riding and hiking, 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 more active, be able to travel, and even be able to take a proper bath, and 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 benefit my health and quality of life. A living donor transplant would mean so much to me because I want to live. 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. May God be with you.

I sincerely thank you,

Charles Samples
