In July of 2012, one of “Tilton’s finest” Officer Nate Morrison, a 14-year veteran of the Tilton Police Department learned during a routine training physical that he that he only had one kidney... only to later learn that he would need a transplant to replace the only kidney that he did have. Since then he has undergone a series of test and trips to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon New Hampshire in order to be added to the donor recipient list, which is lengthy and could take more critical time than a direct donor.
Now, members of the Tilton Police Department are desperately seeking the public’s help in our search for a donor and possible match. The donor for Nate would need to be:
“Type O” blood, between the ages of 21 and 60 and healthy.
We are also seeking monetary donations to help Nate and his family through this difficult time. Donations can be made through the link at the bottom of this website or directly to:
Northway Bank, 5 Market Street, Tilton NH 03276
in the name of
“Help for Nate Fund”
If you know of someone who would be willing to be screened as a donor or make a donation, please contact Detective Nate Buffington at the Tilton Police Department at (603) 286-8207 ext. 112 or Chief Bob Cormier at ext. 101 or click one of the donor links below now!
