Dr. Oz: Man Posts Photo Online & Gets Kidney

Just 24 hours after Raleigh and his family posted a photo online with a sign that said, “Our Daddy Needs a Kidney”, the photo had millions of views and a happy ending.

Raleigh knew he he’d been losing function of his kidney for about 10 years. He also had diabetes and high blood pressure. He felt like he would have to leave his family and he didn’t want to do that. His family didn’t know it had gotten as bad as it did until they saw fax that let them know Raleigh had stage five (or end stage) renal failure. They did everything they could to find a donor. It can take four to five years or even longer to find a donor. Each night, they prayed that Raleigh would find a kidney.
