This New Hampshire 9-year-old needs a kidney. Are you a match?

His family is looking for a donor with blood type A or O.

A 9-year-old boy from Claremont, New Hampshire, needs a kidney. Anyone with the blood type A or O could be a match.

Both of Nymen Koch’s kidneys were removed in June because of a hereditary kidney disease called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, according to a GoFundMe page set up by his family to help with medical expenses.

Koch’s family car has a sign on the back of it that reads, “Please save my 9-year-old son, he needs a kidney to survive, A or O donor,” WCVB reported.

“He’s going to make it, he will, he’s strong, he’s strong willed,” Koch’s mother, Debra Chapman, told the station.
