Still waiting: Cottage Grove man continues search for life-saving kidney
A large pink kidney is not an uncommon sight in one Cottage Grove neighborhood.
Whether it’s a 5-foot-tall snow and ice sculpture or now a wooden cut-out, longtime resident Jim Gorbunow’s search for a life-saving donor continues to be visible.
And while he remains hopeful his health is quickly deteriorating, forcing Gorbunow to begin dialysis as doctors have given him a grim diagnosis: end-stage renal failure.
“It just kind of lets the air out of your sails,” he said.
