GREEN TWP., Ohio (FOX19) - A kidney donor has been found for a Green Township police officer battling polycystic kidney disease (PKD).

Officer Troy Biggs was diagnosed about three years ago. It’s a genetic disease that his sister also has and his mother died a few months ago after living with the disease for years.

Biggs recently learned that his own health is beginning to decline.

Doctors told him he has reached a critical point in his care, and the need for a kidney donor is now.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT CAME OUT FOR THE EVENT!!!!! It was a great day and we hope everyone had a wonderful...

It can take years for someone to receive a transplant, but Biggs’s family felt there was no time to waste, so they spread the word through a website, a Facebook page and flyers.
