Ways to help
Want to help?
You can make Christmas season a little brighter for Deb Trease of Clearwater and her family in a few ways.
Support the cause
Trease recommends supporting the PKD Foundation, www.pkdcure.org. It is the only organization in the U.S. solely dedicated to finding treatments and a cure for Polycystic Kidney Foundation.
Become a donor
Anyone over the age of 16 can register to be an organ or tissue donor through Nebraska Organ Recovery. Nearly 500 Nebraska residents need a transplant, according to its website. Organ and tissue donation often takes place after a donor’s death, but some organs may be donated while the donor is living. Donating a kidney is the most common form of living donation.
For more information about Nebraska Organ Recovery, visit www.nedonation.org. Trease also has a personal webpage to raise awareness about finding a donor: www.facebook.com/donorfordeb.
