Cojocaru seeks another kidney

From Associated Press

Steven Cojocaru is looking for another kidney transplant after the first donated kidney had to be removed due to infection.

Cojocaru, a correspondent for syndicated TV shows “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Insider,” received a kidney from a friend in January. That kidney was removed in June after it became infected with a virus.

The red carpet mainstay says the virus is now gone, leaving him in proper shape for a new transplant. Cojocaru suffers from polycystic kidney disease, a hereditary disorder that causes the growth of cysts on the kidney.
