Kidney still needed for Kim by Paul Mcquien

SAN ANTONIO — In the January and June issues of “Christian News of South Texas,” we printed an appeal on behalf of Kimberly Shields. She is presently on dialysis several times a week and is desperately in need of a kidney transplant. Her father, Allen Shields, was able to donate a kidney to Kimberly 17 years ago, but it had to be removed a few months ago.

Allen earlier reported that one volunteer had been dismissed on account of high blood pressure. Volunteers at her home congregation were also willing to provide a new kidney; however, a suitable match was not located. The Shields family, who are members of the Southwest Church of Christ here, are still hoping and praying that someone with a matching kidney can step forward and donate it to Kimberly. Please keep her and the family in your prayers.

For more information about donating, or any further questions, feel free to contact the family in these ways: Email:; Cell phone: Allen Shields 210-537-5376; Transplant hotline: 1-800-888-0402.
