Lamar Odom’s kidney is reportedly failing. His brother in law, Rob Kardashian is prepared to donate a kidney to save Odom’s life. If no such donation was going to be made, Odom would have had to get on a waiting list possibly waiting several years before a match could be found. With his kidney failing from a drug overdose, he has been on kidney dialysis and a kidney transplant is required to save his life.
Before Rob could proceed with the donation, he would have to go through extensive tests to confirm his kidney is a good fit for Odom. According to the Daily Mail, a close friend said that “Rob is willing to do whatever it takes to help Lamar recover. If that means donating a kidney then so be it, Rob has a big heart and he’s willing to step up to help his friend,”
Odom has already made a miraculous recovery after being in a coma in 3 days after being found unconscious in a brothel. Doctors at the time gave him a 50/50 chance of waking up with full recovery slim. He reportedly suffered multiple strokes that may have damaged his brain and his ability to speak though he was reported to have been able to very softly speak to his wife, Khloe Kardashian after waking up.
