Marvin Gaye’s Son Has Kidney Failure and is Searching for a Donor

Filed under: health,Industry,This and That |


When you hear a story like this, you realize how short life can be and how fragile.  Marvin Gaye III was in the news most recently after threatening to sue Robin Thicke, TI and Pharrell for allegedly stealing his father’s tunes in the summer hit, “Blurred Lines.”  But that wasn’t the entire story.

It turns out that Gaye’s son also suffers from a severe kidney problem and is in need of a donor.  Gaye just announced that he’s been on dialysis for renal failure for the last three years.   He says that he is having trouble finding a kidney to replace the damaged on that exists inside his body.

Gaye says that he is announcing his dilemma publicly to bring attention to all of the other blacks and Hispanics who are in need of new kidneys and to compel African Americans to become organ donors. He is going to donate some of the proceeds from his next album for kidney research as well.

We wish him the best and hope that he is able to get the support he needs.

    • Once you get in touch with Mr. Gay, he will get you in touch with his transplant program. You should be able to do a work-up through your local doctor or hospital. His transplant program is supposed to cover all cost. If you have high blood pressure, diabetes or cancer it is unlikely they will take your kidney. It is very admirable that you want to be a donor. Good Luck!
