Mom hopes billboard helps find kidney donors for twin sons

April 27, 2019

SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — The mother of twin teenagers who need kidney transplants is hoping a billboard put up near an Ohio waterpark will help them find donors.

Beth Meadows, of Huron, tells WKYC-TV she is hoping the billboard on U.S. Route 250 in Sandusky leads to a “miracle” for her family. It features a picture of her 14-year-old sons, Cameron and Jacob, and a website leading to a University Hospitals screening questionnaire for potential donors.

The boys were born with underdeveloped kidneys and received transplants as toddlers, but Meadows says those kidneys are failing again.

The teens are on dialysis for eight hours a day as they wait for potential transplant matches.
