Jeff Blumenfeld never thought he would be a poster child for kidney donation, but there he is on a billboard along Highway 7 in Brighton, asking for help in saving his life.

“First, I didn’t want anybody to know. I’m a private person. It’s a health issue. I didn’t want to be defined by this,” Blumenfeld said.

“Now I’m a volunteer who needs a volunteer,” he said.
