Former Maplewood resident and Air Force veteran Anthony Brooks is in dire need of a living kidney donation. Tony lost one kidney to cancer in 2017 and now faces the removal of his remaining kidney due to cancer in the next three months.
Many local families have deep connection with Tony, his wife Intisar and his family forged throughout the years when their three children — Iman, Ameer and Jawhar (Jojo) — went through the South Orange-Maplewood School District. The family now lives in West Orange.
Those interested in donating should specify Anthony Brooks as the recipient when filling out the RWJ Barnabas Health donation interest form.
