OCALA, Fla. (AP) — A Central Florida family has is begging on street corners for a very unusual donation — a kidney.
Jill Brannen and her two young daughters held signs on an Ocala street corner Saturday looking for a kidney for 19-year-old Nico Rivera. Rivera is on dialysis and has a rare disorder and both of his kidneys are 90 percent scar tissue.
