COLUMBUS, Ohio – An Ohio man in need of a kidney donor is taking his search on the road in unusual fashion, with bright yellow letters taped to the rear window of his sport utility vehicle.
The message on Neal Raisman's silver-blue SUV reads: "Got kidney? I need 1." It includes a phone number for interested callers.
The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1FTdQfk ) reports a similar message is taped on an SUV belonging to Raisman's daughter, who lives not far from her father's home in the Columbus suburb of Bexley. They took the SUV ad approach after Raisman's relatives were ruled out as donors because of diabetes and other medical reasons.
The 67-year-old Raisman says he has heard from a few people, including one offering to sell him an organ, but there's no matching donor yet.
