A Kidney for Sandy

Mike and Sandy Bilski have been married for 24 years and raised 4 kids in Glendale. But 2 years ago, they got some bad news: Sandy's kidneys were failing, and she would need dialysis for the rest of her life. Fortunately, Sandy qualifies for a kidney transplant, but as is always the case, the challenge is finding one.

Mike was inspired to ask not only via social media, but has also very publicly asked via his vehicle, which you may have seen around the neighborhood. The tactic not only has resulted in an overwhelming response from the public but has also caught the attention of major media outlets, bringing their story to an even wider audience.

If you have Type B+ blood and would like to be tested to see if you might be a potential match, please contact NYU-Langone Health in Manhattan at (212) 263-8134 and press option 2. You can follow Sandy's story at "Wife Needs a Kidney" on Facebook.
