WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle issued a statement on his Instagram page earlier today announcing that his brother, Eric Angle, is in need of a kidney transplant.
The former world champion shares a bit of his brother’s life story before asking the wrestling universe if anyone would be willing to give Eric a second shot at life. His full statement reads:
Received a bit of bad news. My brother and best friend in this whole world, Eric, is in need of a kidney transplant. Obviously, it goes without saying how huge of an ask this is, however, if there is by chance a self-less individual out there willing to give Eric a second chance at life please go to livingdonorreg.upmc.com to register.
Eric is my older brother by one year and we have grown up like twins our whole lives. We are often confused for being one another when we are out and about. Needless to say, we are very close. Eric has been married for 16 years to his wife Felicia. They have two stepchildren together along with a pet Bulldog named Libby.
I have been tested recently and I have been told I am not a match so I am trying to do my part in finding a way to get Eric new lease on life. So if anyone is willing to help, appreciation and gratitude are expressed in advance for making such a generous offer.
