One of the country’s heroes needs help from his fellow citizens.

Fayetteville’s Falvorees Jones III, a retired Air Force veteran, has been diagnosed with Stage Five kidney failure. He has been in dialysis since 2015 and goes three times a week for four-and-a-half hours per session.

Jones is seeking a living kidney donor. Current wait time for a kidney from a deceased donor is five to seven years. 

Living kidney donors are healthy people between the ages of 18-60 who do not suffer from kidney disease and heart disease. For more information on the donation process, call 1-888-822-7892 or 770-716-8609.
