Former NFL player Albert Haynesworth took to Instagram on Wednesday night to plea for a kidney donor after revealing his kidneys had failed.
The 38-year-old included a phone number in his plea and as a result Vanderbilt University’s Medical Center has been flooded with over 1,000 calls.
Via Knox News:
Since Haynesworth’s post, Vanderbilt University Medical Center has received more than 1,000 “calls and offers for organ donation from well-wishers and individuals expressing interest,” chief communications officer John Howser said in a statement.
To be considered a donor, individuals must meet specific physical stipulations and other requirements, including the ability to travel to and remain in the Nashville area for a period of time.
That’s great news for Haynesworth. Hopefully one of the over 1,000 people who called the hospital are a match for a donation.
