Ryan Armistead, father of the five-year-old Gregory, was given four years ago to hear that he has a rare autoimmune disorder suffering, a nierfilterontsteking which is known as the disease of Berger. This threw his kidneys are so badly damaged that he the doctors said a kidney transplant was needed. Armisteads wife Jessica immediately went on the search for a donor and suggested a Facebook page. She called potential candidates with blood type O-in order to test and verify whether or not they are a match with her husband would constitute.
Abbie Dunkle, a mom of two kids, always wanted the donor to get someone out in time of need, to help. They saw an opportunity when she the story of Armistead via the local press heard. “It was something of which I thought: "let me just call and see where we end’. He has a son of five, about the age of my son,” says Dunkle.
