An Alberta man and his family are pulling out the stops to try and find him a new kidney. A billboard in Drumheller reads that "Jim really needs a new kidney." Jim Lomond was born with kidney problems and after a couple of transplants his last one failed four years ago. He says that results in four hours of dialysis five days a week. Lomond also has a rare B negative blood type which adds to the challenge and says he just wants to have a normal life again. Kidney transplants usually last about 10 years. (The Canadian Press)
