‘Share your spare and be a hero’: New Brunswick man searches for kidney donor – CTV

On the back of George Leblanc’s black BMW is a bright white decal that asks a unique question.

“It says ‘Kidney Needed’ and it has my type, type O positive, with the phone number, and it says ‘share your spare and be a hero,’” he said.

Leblanc has been waiting for a new kidney for about five years now.

“I’ve been a diabetic for over 40 years and that’s what does most of the damage to your kidneys,” he said.
