Geoffrey Dinoso was walking the streets of Vacaville, California, this week wearing a sign asking for a kidney.

He won’t accept money or pity.

All the 22-year-old man wanted was a kidney so his mother could get the transplant she needed.

His mother, Maria, was diagnosed with end stage renal disease two years ago.

“All of a sudden i got very sick,” Maria Dinoso said. “And then when I went to the ER they did a lot of tests and the tests came out that I got kidney failure already.”

Geoffrey hoped someone might reach out and help save his mother.

“She means the world to me,’ Geoffrey Dinoso said. “She’s my mom, she’s been there for me all my life. So you know, it’s the least i could do.”
