Just read that he needs a kidney transplant. Sad seeing him in hospital. I have a friend that lost a kidney back in high school, and it’s a scary thing to think about.


I know now he’s a volunteer but prayers for the man and his family.

If anyone is interested in helping out check his Instagram page.

    My Dad, a DGD, lost both of his kidneys when I was 1 (1972). He hand 2 unsuccessful transplants that nearly killed him. He lived for 22 years on dialysis. It was a little tough, but not that bad overall. I hope Albert can get one, but all things being equal it isn't the end of the world.

    I am living on one kidney. Lost my left one to cancer 16 months ago.

    I feel for anyone with serious health problems. I hope he has friends or family who can and will agree to help him. He might be in trouble if he has to rely on his fans. He wasn't the most heartwarming or inspiring player during his playing career.
