  • Special Need Request for John Cicchelli's '66 wife, Vicki

    • We Need Your Help. I am John Cicchelli, Class of '66. My wife, Vicki, needs a kidney transplant. Please read her story. Thank you.

      I am asking for a few minutes of your time. I am not good at asking for anything, but I am forced at this point in my like to do so.

      In 2012 my doctor required a CAT Scan. The results found I had a mass on my right kidney and, because it was quite large, both the kidney and the mass had to be removed. Fortunately, the outcome was very positive, no cancer. I have led a very normal life since, until last fall. I was told by my doctor that I need a kidney transplant. My left kidney is failing. I have been unwillingly thrown into the world of transplants. I feel lucky to be living in a world where it is possible to be helped. I need to find a match, a donor, someone willing or someone you know willing to donate a kidney.

      Life can be normal with one kidney. Donors are screened by U of M and all information is very confidential. Please call me for more information, and thank you for your thoughtful consideration. I have to try to reach as many people as possible...the reason for my request. Thank you forever!
