Nancy Tabor


Living Kidney Donor Needed

My name is Nancy Tabor and I am passionate about theater, art and film. I'm currently the Executive Director of a small independent film festival in Easton, Maryland. Thirty years ago, I took medication which affected my kidneys. I currently have only twenty percent use of my kidneys. My doctor has told me that I need to get a kidney transplant before I drop to 10 percent use.

I've been diagnosed with kidney failure for close to thirty years. Right now I am at Stage 4 Renal Failure.

A transplant would mean I could live longer with my wonderful husband Henry and dog Max. I would miss my family and friends. I'm really scared but have faith that someone will step forward and help me.

I am looking for a living kidney donor and those interested can confidentially start the donation process. To be a direct match with me, you would need to be A+. If you're not a direct match, you could still help me by being on the Kidney paired exchange (KPE) which connects people who need kidney transplants with matching donors. KPE can help you find people in the same situation that are a good match, then you can swap with them so both patients can get a kidney.

I am registered for a transplant at Johns Hopkins Hospital. To start the process to volunteer for donating, please call 410-614-9345 and they will send you information. You'll need my birth date which is December 11, 1961. 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 kindness. If you want to reach me, please email me at
