‘Kidney Needed For Daddy’: local family’s plea for life saving surgery

News

“Kidney Needed For Daddy,” it’s a message hard to miss.

The story behind it? Fouad Rizk’s niece made the car decals to help him find an organ match. He’s been on dialysis for almost two years and needs a kidney.

This isn’t the first time his wife Michella and their twins, Charbel and Aya, have dealt with donor lists and hospitals. They had an older sister named Rita, who received a heart transplant, but later passed away from a respiratory infection. She also needed a kidney when she was fighting for her life.

Although they’ve received a lot of calls about the car decal, they have yet to find the right match: A+ or O.

To find out if you’re a match for Fouad, call 518-376-0872 or visit the New York City and Boston hospital donor lists where he is listed here and here
