Chris E. Owens


I truly believe there is "No day but today," for tomorrow is not promised. I hope with your help today will be the start to brighter tomorrow.

“My name is Chris and I have kidney failure. I've worked for the past 4 years for one of top educational institutions in the country. I am the proud father and grandfather of 4 wonderful kids.

After 15 years of living with extremely high blood pressure, my left kidney was diagnosed with cancer and surgically removed 8 years ago. My remaining kidney is no longer functioning and that’s why I’m writing today to ask for your help.”

I have been diagnosed with kidney failure for the past 8 years. It was difficult dealing with high blood pressure and restrictions and diet but adding kidney failure to the mix has made my health so much worse.

I now go to dialysis 3 times a week for a machine to do the work my kidneys can no longer do. It takes over 12 hours out of my week, every week, and drains me of all my energy.
The schedule makes it difficult to work, travel, and even see my family that I love so much.

A Living kidney donation would help me get off of dialysis and return to living a healthier life. It would bring back energy to my life and I could start traveling to visit my family and friends again.”

“I am writing to all of you because I am in need of someone to donate a kidney to me. What most people don’t know is that you only need one kidney to live a healthy life! I would appreciate it if you would consider donating your kidney and/or sharing this post to get the word out for me. That would mean so much! Thank you all for your time.”
