Michael Strong is a Supervising Nassau County Fire Marshal and
is in need of a new kidney. At this time dialysis is only a few months away. He’s been on the donor list since June 2019, but since his blood type is O, the wait is expected to be 8-10 years. It doesn't help his cause, or that of anybody in need of a transplant, that New York ranks last in organ donation. If you can please click the link below and help out a brother in need!
