CHANCE THE Rapper took to social media on Thursday (May 23) to post an emotional plea to the public to help find a kidney for his dying aunt.

The 26-year-old asked his followers to help him locate the organ for his Aunt Toni, who he called “one of the strongest forces in my life”.

“I really need help… she is in dire need of a #kidney,” he tweeted. “We have exhausted all options and have been wait listed for years. My family believes in the power of prayer and we give this problem up to God.”

In a later tweet, the Blessings rapper added: “I’m sorry it was a lil overwhelmingly emotion (sic) writing this, Her blood type is O positive, you can get a quick blood test and physical to find your a match.”

The Red Cross organisation describes the O positive blood type as the most common in the world.

Following the Grammy-award winning musician’s tweets, several fans were quick to respond.

“Hi Chance. Please send me a message. In the past few days I have signed up to become an altruistic living donor in Scotland. This seems like it was meant to be. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help,” one tweeted, while another added, “I’m o+ how do we contact you about it?”

A third wrote: “I’m type O- and would do this in a heartbeat.”

Others who didn’t have a compatible blood type took the opportunity to offer up prayers to Chance’s family, with the rapper expressing his appreciation for the well wishes, as he tweeted: “A prayer really goes a long way.”
