Albert Haynesworth In \'Dire Need\' Of Kidney Donor
Albert Haynesworth is suffering from kidney failure and has taken to Instagram to announce that he is in \"dire need\" of a donor for a transplant.
The 38-year-old former defensive tackle last played in the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2011.
\"Well, this is hard for me to say, but my doctors said I should reach out to my family, friends and fans,\" Haynesworth wrote. \"Some of you may know I\'ve been battling kidney disease for a few years ... now the time has come family, friends and fans, I\'m in dire need of a kidney ... mine have finally failed me on July 7 2019. It\'s hard to believe from being a professional athlete to only 8 season in retirement that my body has taken another major blow.
\"First with the brain aneurysm 3 seasons out of the NFL to now my kidneys failing me,\" the post continued. \"But the bright side of this latest ordeal I can ask for help by asking for someone to generously donate a kidney.
