UPDATE FROM TREVOR!


Trevor is a friend of the show and he’s also the guy who brought you THIS photo:

Yes, TREVOR TOOK IT!! The photo that brought down an entire music festival…

Anyway, he needs help. Trevor needs a kidney transplant and he wrote about it on his latest Instagram post:
This post is about to get pretty real. If you don’t want to read a book here’s the short version: I need a kidney transplant. If you are interested in becoming my donor click the link in my bio. You’ll fill out a questionnaire from Stanford Healthcare in which you can specify that you are attempting to become a potential donor for, me, Trevor DeHaas 01/02/1990.

This post is about to get pretty real. If you don't want to read a book here's the short version: I need a kidney transplant. If you are interested in becoming my donor click the link in my bio. You'll fill out a questionnaire from Stanford Healthcare in which you can specify that you are attempting to become a potential donor for, me, Trevor DeHaas 01/02/1990. Okay now the long version: I've been pretty distant from this app for a while now. I've wanted to explain why but fear has prevented me from doing so. So many times I've tried to post but the words escaped me. My thumbs turn to jello and my brain shuts down. However @ruffwear recently shared my story which has given me enough confidence to finally talk more about my situation. I need a kidney transplant. There I said it. Or technically typed it, but same difference right? I've hinted at needing a transplant here and there on this app without officially saying those five words. However I can't keep wasting precious time that I could be using to spread awareness. I'm used to sharing stories on social media but not like this. I'd rather camp naked in mosquito territory, eat 10 pounds of chalk, or watch the eagles lose a superbowl before I tell some random strangers on the internet I need a kidney transplant. However if there's even a 00.00000001% chance that I find a donor from posting this then it will all be worth it. What do I have to lose right? I've talked about needing a kidney transplant in the past but it's only been recently that I now actually need one. For the last 19 years I thought I was prepared for this inevitable surgery...on the rare occasion that I would actually tell someone I needed a transplant I would say it so casually like it was as simple as getting a root canal. It's not, it's a big f*cking deal. It's life altering. That reality is really starting to sink in. Continued in the comments...
