WEST ALLIS, Wis. (CBS 58) – A West Allis woman in need of a kidney donation took matters into her own hands by coming up with the idea to put up billboards across the Milwaukee metro area.
Jessica Wickersheimer says she’s been getting dozens of calls the past two weeks that the billboards have been up. The 38-year-old has dealt with medical issues since she was a child and needs a live kidney donation as soon as possible.
There are six billboards across the area displaying her message. Although Wickersheimer has not found her perfect match, she says the response has been great.
“My phone has been non-stop ringing, messages on Facebook and messenger,” she said. “Our website is loaded with messages, emails and text messages.”
Wickersheimer has heard from people all across the U.S. and the world. Someone from as far away as Vietnam contacted her about being a donor.
The billboards will be up for another two weeks. If you’re interested in helping Wickersheimer, more information can be found on her website.
