NEWPORT-David Ottinger, 73, has been on dialysis for two and one-half years, and is hoping someone in the community whose blood type matches his will donate their kidney to him.

"We came here to beg for a kidney," said Ottinger and his wife, Shirley, to The Plain Talk.

David Ottinger says he has good days, and bad days.

He is looking for someone with type B or type O, negative or positive.

"He's very active," said Shirley Ottinger of her husband.
