Dear friends,

This is an urgent notice on David S. Ware¹s health.  David needs to find a
kidney donor.

David S. Ware was diagnosed with kidney failure in 1999 and he began
dialysis that fall.  He had an intensive three week hemodialysis regime
toward beginning peritoneal (self-administered) dialysis, which would allow
him to travel.  David has been on this self-administered dialysis regime
multiple times every day and night since October 1999.  While certainly
difficult, he has been able to travel, and perform his music undiminished,
since then.

However, late this past December, David called to say that after 9 years
this treatment was no longer working as it had been, and that a kidney
transplant is the only viable option for his survival.

Since then a number of friends and family members have offered to give him
one of their kidneys. Unfortunately, they have all been disqualified due to
health reasons or not having David's blood type, O.

Some basic/initial requirements for viable donors are that they must be
under 60 years of age, do not have diabetes or high blood pressure, are in
general good health, and have blood type O (either O+ or O- is fine).

The hospital where a transplant would take place is the very highly regarded
Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ

Willing and able potential donors should please get in touch with us as soon
as possible:

telephone: 718 854 2387

We will then get them directly in touch with the Kidney Transplant Center at
RWJU Hospital to begin the screening process for donor viability.


Thank you on behalf of David S. Ware;
please feel free to forward this notice.
