Burlington man seeks kidney donor to "share a spare"

NOW: Burlington man seeks kidney donor to “share a spare“

A few mosquito bites lead to the search of a lifetime for a Burlington man.

Lenny Zwieg contracted Dengue Fever 14 years ago during a business trip to Africa. Over time, the disease destroyed his kidney function leaving him in need of a donor. So far that search has not yielded any positive results, so the family is expanding their reach and asking everyone they possibly can to consider becoming a donor.

Jacob Kittilstad shared Lenny’s story on CBS 58 Sunday Morning.
