Hi Twitter. I need your help.— DEV☻N K☻ (@devonko_) October 6, 2021
A few years ago, I had a freak accident that sent me into catastrophic kidney failure. I've been struggling to find a kidney donor ever since. I'm in dire need of a type O+/- kidney and ask that you please share my story.#kidneyfordevon
In Devon's words
In April 2019, I stopped by a Trader Joe's and picked up sushi for dinner. I woke up the next day feeling sick. Within 24 hours, I was struggling to get out of bed, overcome with nausea and chills.
I eventually dragged myself to a doctor and was diagnosed with ciguatera fish poisoning. I'll never forget the sheer panic in my physician's voice after the blood test results came back. She told me to go straight to the ER.
At 31 years old, I was in kidney failure.
