Marvin Gaye's son recently announced he is on dialysis for his kidney failure, and has had this serious medical problem for the last three years. Gaye is having difficulty finding a kidney match for a transplant. Now, he is reaching out to the public for a kidney donation, and to bring to light the difficulty that minorities face securing healthy organ donation. Gaye is planning to give a charitable contribution from his upcoming album sales to a kidney research organization.
