11-Year-Old Turns to YouTube, Facebook in Search for Kidney Donor
An 11-year-old girl in Auburn, Maine has turned to social media in hopes of getting a life-saving kidney transplant. “Hi, my name is Emily Pooler. I have stage four chronic kidney disease,” her July 6 YouTube video begins. “I am looking for a kidney donor. You have to be very healthy. If you are willing to donate, contact the Maine Transplant Program,” she says before holding up a piece of paper with the detailed contact information.
