New Jersey man pleads for kidney transplant after donor changes mind
Wednesday, June 10, 2020 8:08PM

A man from New Jersey who was set to receive a kidney transplant is pleading for help after his donor had a change of heart due to COVID-19 concerns.

Earlier this year, doctors did find a match, and surgery was scheduled for right after Easter. But when COVID-19 hit, everything was put on hold because it was considered elective surgery.

Surgery was rescheduled for early July, but then came another blow. The donor changed their mind, feeling that because of the circumstances in the world right now, they couldn't go through with it.
