LOS ANGELES (KRON) —  Former NBA star Lamar Odom may need a new kidney, according to TMZ.

The 35-year-old’s condition continues to improve, but reports said he needs the kidney. TMZ is reporting that close sources to Odom said that his kidneys are shot.

To avoid getting a transplant, he is going to undergo dialysis at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles. With the news of his condition, fans are offering up their own organs on social media to help save his life.

Some people on Twitter are saying that his mistakes should not define him and that everyone deserves a second chance. The father of two overdosed after spending a weekend at a Nevada brothel.

Police suspect he was using cocaine, alcohol, and herbal Viagra. Toxicology tests have yet to be released.

Odom’s estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, has been by his side since he was hospitalized.
