Regina, Saskatchewan – Former Regina Pats Captain Kyle Deck has been diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy, an autoimmune kidney disease.
Deck, a father of two young children, played with the Pats for five seasons and was the Pats’ Captain from 2005 to 2007. Kyle is in need of a kidney transplant in short order. Therefore a matching donor needs to be found.
"We want to help Kyle in any way we can and right now we need to find a kidney donor match," says Pats President Brent Parker. "Time is obviously an issue and we're asking for community assistance. Kyle was always a very giving kid when he was our captain and if there's anything we can do, we will."
If you are interested in being tested as a possible kidney match for Kyle or anybody in need of a kidney transplant, please contact Craig at the Chronic Kidney Disease Clinic at 766-6444
