BUFFALO, N.Y. — Western New York has been wrapping its arms around a Sisters Hospital nurses aid in need of a kidney.
2 On Your Side first met Ashley Berlinski in December. She's a 27-year-old with stage five renal failure, which means her kidney is failing. She's in desperate need of a new one.
"I look OK, but on the inside, things are not so great," she said in December.
Since our first story aired, Berlinski says 13 people have already gone through the testing process in hopes of being a match for her.
On Sunday, a fundraiser was held to raise money for her treatment and awareness about the importance of organ donation.
If you weren't able to make the fundraiser, you can also donate through her GoFundMe page.
Berlinski needs a donor with O-negative or O-positive blood type.
However, if you don't have that blood type, you can still help her. If you donate a kidney to someone else in need, the hospital will be able to find her a kidney as well.
