Kurt Angle has issued another desperate plea to save his brother’s life. Eric Angle was recently diagnosed with cancer in his left kidney. Eric will not survive if a donor is not found soon so doctors can perform transplant.

Kurt posted yet another appeal as he tries to find a matching donor to save Eric Angle’s life. The WWE Hall of Famer was not a match himself, so he is doing all he can to make a difference. Angle stressed that time is of the essence.

“After posting about my brother Eric last month, sadly we have more terrible news. The doctors recently found cancer in my brother’s left kidney. It is imperative that we find a kidney donor ASAP. We are literally racing against time. As I stated before 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 a 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 step children 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. For those who have inquired and was not matched, Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have no words to express my gratitude.”

The Angle family is hoping for a generous individual to step up and donate their kidney to Eric Angle. Anyone interested can apply on the UPMC website Kurt Angle gave in his post. Time is running out, but Kurt is not giving up hope.
