It was just another trip to the local Costco for Karen Aguayo when she and a couple of friends came to a screeching halt, after reading a man’s shirt. It was 67-year-old Robert Duran’s plain black shirt, with white lettering that stopped Karen and her friends in their tracks.

Neatly and boldly written on the back of his shirt, read:

“Kidney donor needed, Type B+, Ask me how.”

They wasted no time in getting to know his story. Robert is going through kidney failure which means he’s on dialysis three times a week. Each time is four hours spent enduring the process that is keeping him alive through stage five kidney disease. Karen and her crew snapped a few photos of Robert and shared it online, and the feedback has been staggering.

Robert’s story continues. Click on to the next page to see what Karen did next.
