This is the last week to vote for Secretly Timid. It would be awesome if you would head over to the PodCast Awards and cast your vote for our little show. Thank you so much for listening, voting, and supporting.
I follow some cool ass people on Tumblr, one of which being comedian Ricky Cisco. This dude cracks me up everyday. Today he became an inspiration.
A while back Cisco read a post from one of his facebook friends. The post read:
Wishing a Kidney would fall out of the sky so my husband can stop suffering. The doctors said it would take at least 5 years for a deceased kidney donor. So if anyone knows a live donor with Type O blood, PLEASE let me know.
Ricky responded and after a string of tests discovered he was a match. In preparation for having to take months off of work to recover, Ricky set up a fundraising acct. to cover his living expenses, and through donations I am glad to report that he met his goal. This morning he and the man who needed the kidney, Jeffrey Kurze, went under the surgeon’s knife. I just learned via Kidney for Kurze that Ricky is out of surgery and doing well.
Secretly Timid wishes both Ricky and Jeffrey a speedy recovery.
