A Kamloops man in need of a kidney has taken his search on the road.

Louis Vic Morin has chronic kidney disease (CKD) and to find a living donor, he and wife Colleen Bruce have added a decal to the back window of their black Mazda.

It reads: “I need a kidney,” along with Morin’s B-positive blood type and contact phone numbers.

“Vic’s been driving all over town trying to get the word out,” Bruce said with a laugh.

For more information on live kidney donation, contact the donor nurse co-ordinator at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver by calling 1-877-922-9822 or emailing donornurse@providencehealth.bc.ca.
