Central Maine resident, Rachael Burns, is asking the public for some pretty serious help.

"I am looking for a kidney. '0' prefered. Everything is paid for by me and travel will also be 100% paid for each trip you make. Out of state people included. You can check online to see if you can donate. If you are willing and you don't match me, they will trade and I can still (get) one!! Please think about it. I would prefer to live longer. Thank you"

If you are interested in finding out if you are a match and can help, please visit the donor screen page at MMC's website. Even if you are not a direct match, donating a kidney may directly help save Rachael's life.
