Former Rutgers Football Player Nicholas Sauter In Need Of Kidney Donor

One of our own needs help

Ohio State v Rutgers

A former Rutgers football player is in need of help. Nicholas Sauter, who was a member of the 1976 undefeated team, needs a kidney transplant. Here is the link and full text of a letter with full information regarding his situation.

Nicholas Sauter, an Alumnus of Rutgers University, is in search of a kidney donor. Nick, who resides in Little Falls, NJ, is in need of a kidney transplant. Nick grew up in Totowa, NJ, went to Passaic Valley High School, and attended Rutgers University from 1973-1977 where he played four years of football and was a member of the 1976 Scarlet Knights Undefeated Football Team. Nick taught at Passaic Valley High School for over 20+ years, coaching both football and track, and ultimately retiring as Vice Principal. Nick is also an active member of St. Agnes Episcopal Church where he has been a member of the Vestry and is actively involved with their food pantry. Anyone who knows Nick would agree he is a very kind hearted person, a loving husband to his wonderful wife of 40 years, father of two remarkable children, and a very proud grandfather to three beautiful grandchildren. Nick has a heart of gold and shares it with so many special people in his life. It is with much hope and prayer that we find a donor who meets the criteria for Nick. Blood Type A Negative. With that being said, would you be so kind to share this post with your family, friends and Facebook friends? In this day and age, social media and word of mouth are the best ways of communicating with each other. If you know of anyone who might be interested in being a donor, please contact Donna Tissot at 973-714-7016 or Kelly Booth 973-632-7170 for further information. I, as well as the Sauter family, offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has taken the time to read this.

Thank you very much,

Donna Tissot
