Toby Ankebrant


In need of a kidney

Hi. My name is Toby. I am 34 years old and have had kidney problems since I was born. My first surgery was when I was 3 weeks old. And this past Sept I just had number 16. June 2020 I was diagnosed with stage 5 Chronic Kidney Disease

At this point I am not on dialysis, but I am close. With how I feel day to day is always different. Some days I have lots if energy, and other days I just want to lay down all day.

Having a transplant would not just benefit me, but also my family. Between me and my wife we have 4 kids, with our youngest almost 3. I need to be around to help raise our kids and join them in their activities.

Getting a living donor kidney has a better chance of success for transplant then death donors. Please share my story to help get the word out. Donors are able to live on one kidney. If you are interested in becoming a donor for me please go to the following site.

Or if you are still interested to be a donor for anyone close to your area please contact your local transplant center to get more information
