Please help this 13 year old girl find a kidney donor

Professor Mitch Rubinstein, who edits the Adjunct Law Prof Blog, asked me to post the message below.  Mitch is a great guy and I can't think of a better cause than this. If you know someone who might be able to help, please pass along this message.

My 13 year old daughter (seen here in the blue with her 15 year old sister Mollie (in pink) with my wife Lisa) has a genetic Kidney disease and now needs a Kidney transplant.

In the process of being evaluated to be a donor, it was discovered that I have Kidney disease (polycystic Kidneys) and cannot donate. My wife's blood type does not match. Our other daughter is too young to donate.

Linda's blood type is "O." We are looking for a doner with "O" blood type. If your type "O," other blood tests need to be performed to see if your a match.   

If you think you can help out, please contact me at professorrubinstein@gmail.com. 

If your unable to be a donor, but know someone that might be, I would appreciate if you could pass this information along.

Linda's sister created a Facebook page entitled My Little Sister Needs A Kidney which provides additional information about Linda. 

Thank you very much for caring.
