Salmo man in need of kidney donor

The family of Dallas Tetz is hoping someone will step forward

The family of a Salmo man in desperate need of a kidney donor is asking for help from the public.

Dallas Tetz is suffering from polycystic kidney disease, which causes cysts to grow that lead to kidney failure. Tetz has cysts on both of his kidneys, which each now weigh nine kilograms as opposed to the normal 150 grams.

Anyone interested in donating a kidney to Tetz, whose blood type is O, can call 1-877-955-1755 or email donornurse@providencehealth.bc.ca. Tetz’s sister Brenda can also be reached at 250-354-8244.
