The family explained that if someone has two healthy kidneys, they can donate one to enhance or save Tyler’s life. Both the donor and Tyler can live a healthy, happy life with just one kidney.

This means that donating a kidney can save two lives, and help both families to live with added peace of mind. The gift of giving enhances the donor’s life and the recipient’s.life.

Tyler suffered from a massive stroke, traumatic brain injury, and kidney failure. A kidney transplant would extend his life for many decades.

His family describes him as an amazing young man who is kind, caring and passionate. However,it was discovered that he suffers from Antiphospholipid Syndrome, which shut down his kidneys and skyrocketed his blood pressure, causing the stroke.

Living organ donors are usually between the ages of 18 and 60 years old. Interested parties looking to become a donor will be checked to see if they are compatible.

This means finding a compatible blood type, tissue type, and matching with certain other markers.

Donors will be carefully evaluated to ensure they’re healthy enough to donate. However, by donating they will be have an immediate impact and help Tyler and his family in the most amazing way possible.

There are over 100,000 people waiting for a kidney across the US. This means that there are many more people looking for a kidney than there are donating.

Anyone interested in kidney donation to help save Tyler’s life is encouraged to get in touch with the family’s nearest transplant center, Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA. If they are a healthy match, they can schedule a transplant at a time that suits both families.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died.

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Feb 27, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Feb 27, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House.
