The American Kidney Fund tells me I cannot donate a kidney because I am diabetic. How can I help? Here is my situation. I don't drive so I can't help get him too appointments if he needs that help. I live in another town to boot. I pray for him. I have shared a link on Facebook asking folks to donate (either money to the American Kidney Fund or a kidney).

I am asking becuse I want to help.

Have you asked him what help he might need?

Can you help encourage people to get tested as donors?

It's hard trying to find a way to help...but ask him or maybe his family. You never know what they might come up with.

Face time calls. Chat like nothing is out of the ordinary. Be a shoulder if needed.

What about helping him indirectly? Maybe offering to coordinate/schedule the help of others who can step up in person. Maybe placing or helping him set up meal/grocery deliveries? Arranging some housekeeping? Setting up rideshares he can use for himself? Arrange some movie or sporting event rentals or a subscription to a streaming service? Send him a new release book? I agree about checking in by phone. The calls don't need to be long. It can help a lot to know someone else is thinking about him.
