    This isn't the first time someone turned to a sporting event to find a transplant.

    In 2018, Kelly Sowatsky's story made headlines.

    She found a donor after waving a sign at a Pittsburgh Penguins game.

    Ashley Pritchard also asked for help for her father at a Pittsburgh Penguins hockey game in December.

    So far, 70 people have stepped forward willing to be tested as a possible donor for David Pritchard.

    The 58-year-old Cranberry Township man has already had one kidney transplant and has battled tongue and tonsil cancer, as well as thyroid cancer.

    He was diagnosed in May 2018 with Stage 5 kidney failure.
