Coney Island Woman In Need Of Life-Saving Kidney Transplant

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Coney Island woman who cares for her disabled son and husband says she is in desperate need of a life-saving kidney transplant.

Michele London, 62, is fighting kidney disease. She has taken care of her son, who has Prader Willi Syndrome and is paralyzed, and her husband, who is also disabled, for years, 1010 WINS reported.

Now, London is seeking the kindness of a stranger to help save her life.

The retired New York City Housing Authority worker says that her blood type, A, makes her an easy match for anyone who has blood type A or O.

“Generally they have to match antibodies, but I don’t have any antibodies, so I would be an easy match for anybody who was my blood type,” London told 1010 WINS.

London is on the waiting list for a kidney donation in New York City, but says that it could take up to seven years before she could get a kidney.

A potential kidney donor can contact London by emailing with your name, contact information and blood type.
