Gonzales, La (NBC33) — One woman is using Facebook to help find potential Kidney donors.
Barbara Swarm says she's been fighting chronic Kidney Failure for a long time, and donors are hard to come by, so she started a Facebook page called "Need a Kidney, Got a Spare".
The page has resources on how to get involved with donations, and questionnaires to help if you want to donate.
Swarm says it really helps with getting the word out.
"People spend about six and a half hours on Facebook alone, and what an opportunity to get the word out about kidney transplants and kidney donors," said Swarm.
