FAIRFIELD - A Fairfield woman is searching for somebody to help save her life by donating a kidney.

Peggy Karbovanec was diagnosed with an inherited kidney condition in 2014, which has caused her kidney function to decline drastically.

She is urgently in need of a live kidney donor and has taken to the streets putting up fliers to ask for the public’s help.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal has joined the effort and will be taking Karbovanec’s message across the state.
