Desperate attempt for kidney pushes Kelowna man's search overseas (Dr. David Landsberg)
A 32-year-old Kelowna man with a history of what doctors call “bad luck” is making one last desperate attempt to find a kidney match. Jes Jaswal, who has lived more than half his life with no kidneys, is expanding his search to India and China.
“I feel like I'm kind of pushing the envelope here. The end is probably pretty near and I don't want that to happen.”
“It doesn't meet the need. We still have a very long waiting list, and we still have many patients who are waiting many years for transplants. We're doing better, but we could do even better than that,” said Dr. David Landsberg with B.C. Transplant.
