A Georgia family is in a “race against time” to find a kidney donor for a father of two and 24-year police veteran who faces fatal renal failure.

Raleigh Callaway, a 49-year-old father of two and long-time investigator with the Greensboro Police Department in Georgia, recently learned that he has “Stage 5” kidney failure, his wife told FoxNews.com.

"It’s the end stage," Kristi Callaway said. "We’re in desperate need for a match."

The Callaways, who have two daughters, ages 2 and 4, went public with their plea on Wednesday, launching a Facebook page called, “Our Daddy Needs a Kidney.” The social media page has garnered nearly 4,000 followers since it was created less than 48 hours ago.

Callaway, who has had chronic kidney disease for about 10 years, is being treated at Emory Hospital in Atlanta. As of 10:30 a.m. Friday, the transplant center received 300 phone calls from prospective donors wanting to be tested, Callaway’s wife said.

Since learning of her husband’s grave condition this week, Kristi Callaway said, “We are just going full speed ahead hoping and praying that he is going to get a match sooner rather than later.”

Callaway explained the complexity involving kidney donations, saying, “It only takes one donor, but it takes a lot of people to be tested to find that match.”

Our girls adore their Daddy as if he hung the sun, moon and stars. Our girls deserve to have their father walk them down the aisle, and he can’t bear the thought of not seeing them on their wedding day. A new kidney would give him the life and time needed to witness the birth of our grandchildren. One person, just one person, could change our entire family’s lives forever.

Please, if you’re willing to find out if you’re the one who could be a match, reach out to me. God bless each person who took the time to read this. The number to call Emory Transplant is 855-366-7989. Let them know you’d like to be tested as a donor match for Raleigh Callaway. His dob is 3/5/65. They prefer the donor call them so they know the donor isn’t being pressured. Thank you so very much! Please share with your friends, so we can reach as many potential donors as possible!” ~Kristi Callaway

I was so proud that I got through like 72 Chapters of Shattering Expectations and she just updated Chapter 84 and 85 this week. And she updated Loose this weekend and The Thunderbolt not too long ago and she got some drabbles coming up. I love all the AU elements she throws at Olitz. The lady is a force!

generie asked: Hi Trudy. Since I became involved with social justice I have rejected the mainstream atheist community because I knew of it's western supremacist/racist/sexist attitudes, a lot of the community is problematic. But I felt needed a space when I lost nearly half of my friends and my family since I left my religion. These days I don't know how to cope with the bullying I get as a black woman for not being theist. Even within the social justice community I feel shunned sometimes, ever feel like this?

gradientlair:

Part one? Yes. Discussed that here: Agnostic Atheist, But Not Interested In White Supremacist Atheism and Race, Gender And Online Skeptic or Asexual Communities

Part two? Yes. LOL. Discussed that here: Fellow Black People Who Are Theist And/Or Heterosexual, Please Give Me A Break. Please.

It is difficult. We are already catching hell because of anti-Blackness, racism, White supremacy, sexism, misogyny, misogynoir and other oppressions applicable based on our individual identities and then within Blackness we occupy a tiny space, (and not just as skeptics/agnostic/atheists but often times as Black women *specifically* we are expected and even demanded to be theist in ways Black men are not). Margins in the margins and such… 

I’ve always felt like an outcast even before disavowing theism. I feel way more okay with this now at my age approaching 35 and what I’ve been through in life versus when I was a bit younger. I understand how difficult it can be sometimes when that outcast status then feels like you’re being actively punished for it. 

I am so sorry that you lost loved ones. (((hugs if wanted))) So did I! Not just lost love ones either but they actively hate me know. Actively. At the same time some loved ones still love me, even more, and relationships have grown. I truly hope that happens for you with even a few people.

Sikivu Hutchinson writes a lot about the dichotomy you describe; her writing has helped me A LOT. A Black female atheist invested in Blackness not theism and atheism not White supremacy. (And for me, ultimately my community is with Blackness and Black womanhood above anything else, so I’m interested in if/how Black theists recognize the tiny space Black skeptics, agnostics, atheists etc. occupy and work with that moreso than expecting White mainstream atheism to divest of White supremacy enough to consider us human, because that’s not happening with White theists in mass either. Feel me?)

Also talking to other PoC atheists (on Twitter) has been helpful for me. Even some White women atheists who’ve experienced terrible misogyny within mainstream atheism community have reached out to me and we’ve talked about this. (And a teeny tiny handful of White men atheists—who reject the dogmatic, dawkmatic, White supremacist, anti-Black, Islamaphobic, paternalistic way the mainstream operates—I’ve spoken to, and they’ve been supportive.)

I don’t think we’ll necessarily have the “community” around this that we’ve come to know when we have community around Blackness or Black womanhood, but there are Black people working to create such spaces and maybe with time there will be more. If you haven’t already, check out: atheists of colour (list), African Americans For Humanism, Sikivu Hutchinson blog, Blog Talk Radio - Black FreeThinkers, @PoCBeyondFaith, @BlkFreeThinkers.

Hope this helps. Take care.

People are sending him racist messages telling him it’s not gonna happen and he doesn’t belong in Disney World over this post. So we’re gonna reblog it even more.

I remember this guy! Wow, it’s still only a little bit over half. Rebloggan’!

I don’t normally do these ‘reblog if’ things, but hell, if it annoys racists, why not.

That’s kinda where I stand on things.  I mostly ignore them, but kid, YOU’RE GOIN’ TO DISNEY WORLD.

I love how racists came to the party and we promptly got another 100k reblogs.  Like, WE ARE WEE AND SOMETIMES PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE, BUT FUCK YOU, HE’S GONNA RIDE THE HAUNTED MANSION UNTIL HE’S DONE.
