A Minneapolis Police officer battling lupus and kidney failure received a life-changing transplant this week. Carlos Escobar, 35, is recovering at Hennepin County Medical Center. He spent two years on a waiting list for a kidney donation. After working a full day as a police officer, he would come home and spend seven hours on dialysis, hoping and praying a donor would come through. “I never expected it to be too soon because they told me with my blood type, it could be seven years,” Escobar said
On Wednesday, a Twin Cities event aims to help pay for research into Lupus while also supporting patients. The Lupus Food and Wine Classic will be held at the Great Room at Mall of America.
