Connecticut Senate President Martin Looney of New Haven needs a new kidney. This was made public on a Facebook post by Father James Manship, pastor of St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in New Haven, where Looney was a parishioner in his youth.  

Senator Looney says he’s just been approved for a kidney transplant at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and he feels fine right now.

He says he’s thankful that Father Manship posted the appeal on Facebook because the average wait for a kidney transplant for those who don’t have a family match is four to five years.
