Menchu Sanchez, The Filipino Nurse In Dire Need Of Kidney Donor on DWN TRANSPLANT
Date Posted: 04/Apr/2018   Deadline: 04/Apr/2018


A Filipina nurse, who is considered one of the heroes of the 2012 Hurricane Sandy disaster in the US, is in need of a kidney donor to save her life.




 




Menchu Sanchez, a nurse at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, had devised a plan to transport 20 at-risk infants to intensive care units around the city during the hurricane.




 




Former US President Barack Obama lauded Sanchez in his State of the Union address in 2014 for organizing fellow nurses and doctors to carefully carry the babies down 8 flights of stairs with only cell phones to light the way.




 




Both kidneys of the 61-year-old nurse, however, have deteriorated. She has been in the waiting list for a kidney donation for 3 years now.
