Pennsylvania man John Nakata has been told he only has two years left to live -- if he does not receive a kidney donation.
Nakata's blood type is O-negative, held by only about 7 percent of the population. Blood type is only one factor however, and tissue size and general health must also be tested before a match can be determined.
Potential donors can contact the Nakata family by calling 570-436-5114 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 570-436-5114 end_of_the_skype_highlighting or sending an e-mail to Donate2John@gmail.com.
