An ailing woman is using her car to ask for someone to donate a kidney to her.

Jenny Cervantes, 34, is battling renal failure and asking strangers to donate an organ that could save her life.

She works full-time and undergoes dialysis at home. She is on the kidney registry but was told her wait could be years.

She drives around in a vehicle marked with a message requesting a kidney. She says she has received a few responses so far, and is holding out hope that her method will help her find a match.

To contact Cervantes, call 979-2481.
