Tyler is only 34-years old. At age 32, on January 22, 2018, Tyler suffered a massive stroke while sitting in his Dorchester condo in South Boston having a quiet after-work conversation with his fiancée, Sarah Hughes. He told Sarah he could not feel his right side. He was rushed by ambulance to Boston Medical Center. His blood pressure was up to 250. He was having a major stroke. He suffered a severe brain-bleed that almost took his life.

Ty's medical team cared for him for eight months in intensive care, took frequent tests, but were still baffled by what caused his stroke. He had been young, healthy, and active. One day an antibody for a rare blood-clotting disease was revealed in his blood test. It is called Antiphospholipid Syndrome. APS had shut down Ty's kidneys and skyrocketed his blood pressure so high as to cause the stroke and destroy a large part of his left brain.

the right side of his body remains paralyzed, he has been progressing with help from physical and speech therapies and a variety of medications. Unfortunately, Ty’s kidneys have not recovered sufficiently since his stroke, so he needs dialysis three days a week. 

For Ty to continue his recovery toward a more fulfilling life, he needs a live kidney from a healthy donor. 

The ideal donor will have Type A blood.

I listen to news stories all the time about people who have had their lives saved by someone they don't know. My husband was a firefighter and saved more than a few lives. He was so grateful for what he was able to do for others. It enriched our lives.

It is incredible and wonderful that people find the courage and love to share the gift of life to help someone else, sometimes a complete stranger. So, it is in with that in mind; I am writing this article to speak out on behalf of Tyler Longland's family and friends.

Tyler is truly a remarkable soul. Not just my words but repeated by everyone who's lives he's touched. More...
