46 Year Old Westfield Father of 4 In Need of a Kidney Transplant
Andrew Gibbs, an active member of our community and father of 4 young children, is suffering from a genetic disease which has caused the gradual loss of his kidney function. He is on the transplant list but there is a 4-5 year wait and he will likely require debilitating dialysis treatment in the near future. Living donation is the best medical option and would allow Andy to regain his health and live an active life. Donation involves testing and a minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure, with all medical expenses covered by Andy's health insurance. If anyone is interested in providing this important gift of life to Andy, they can contact his wife Sue at (908)400-3471 or call Ms. Carol Coumbis at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at (732)253-3699. Ms. Coumbis can answer questions regarding the testing and procedure.
Thank you for your kind consideration.
