Patrick Kostkowski


Looking for a living liver donor. If interested, go to the Johns Hopkins website for information on the entire process.

My name is Patrick Kostkowski. I am a retired school teacher and coach. I loved working with young people in the classroom and athletic fields.
I was fortunate enough to work with many outstanding young student athletes over the years.
In 2013 I was diagnosed with liver disease. In the last three years I have had to have 5 different banding procedures, because of internal bleeding from my esphogial varicices. I am in need of a liver donor. The regenerative power of the liver is amazing. A donor would only be giving up a part of their healthy liver. I have blood work done every three months and an MRI every six. I have other problems from this disease. I have an inflamed gallbladder. Fluid in my stomach causing to be bloated. Extremely low white blood cell levels, which has weakened my immune system. Because if that, I have to be extra careful about contracting viruses.
I thank you for your time in reading my story. If anyone comes forward to help me in my time of need, my family and I would be grateful for your actions.
God Bless all that need help

I miss spending time with friends and family. I was a social person before my diagnosis. Now, I dont venture out very much.
My wife will be retiring soon and we hope to travel with our family.

A chance to live my twilight years knowing I can do what I want and go where I want. I would love to get back into coaching in a minor role. I believe working with young people is my purpose in life.

Anyone intrested in donating a part of their liver, they can remain confidential if you choose, can go to the Johns Hopkins hospital website to get get info about their Living Donor Program.
Please share my story with others.
Thanks Pat
