Ed Hearn needs a kidney. We Mets Fans helped Ed Kranepool find a match. Hopefully we can do that for Ed too.
From ABC NewsHowever, when the team celebrated the players from yesteryear during the return of the Mets' Old Timers' Day this summer, Hearn was a notable absence - this due to serious health issues.
"The main thing right now is I am losing my kidney," he says.
The 62-year-old former World Series champ has spent the last several decades as a motivational speaker and helping others - is now turning to others for help.
Hearn is in dire need of a kidney and is hoping Mets fans can step up to the plate.
"I desperately need to get a living donor transplant so I can get back in the game of life," says Hearn, "I'm in stage 5 - the end stage. There are five stages, I'm at the end. I'm feeling the effects and just need to get a donor."
