Norma Brickey, 82, has been driving the streets of Columbus, Ohio, with a sign in her car window. It reads: “My son needs a kidney, O positive,” followed by her phone number, 614-822-0911.
Brickey knows the difficulties of finding a kidney firsthand: Both she and another of her sons have had kidney transplants. All three suffer from polycystic kidney disease.
Here & Now‘s Robin Young talks with Brickey about her mission to save her son’s life.
“I’m just shocked at the people, their kindness, their concern,” Brickey says.
