Former Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Actor Ernie Reyes Jr. Needs Kidney Transplant


Film and television star Ernie Reyes Jr. is in need of a kidney transplant. His sister Destiny Reyes has started a Go Fund Me for those of you that would like to help.

"Thank you for taking a moment to see why and how you can make a difference," Destiny wrote on Go Fund Me. "My brother, Ernie Reyes Jr., was recently in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) fighting for his life suffering from kidney failure. Ernie is currently undergoing dialysis treatment 3 times per week for 4 hours a day while waiting for a kidney transplant. This is a very challenging time not only for Ernie Jr.'s immediate family, but a challenging time for our family as well."

Reyes Jr. is perhaps best known for his debut role in Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon. For me, I think of Ernie's stunt work as Donatello in the first live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or his role as Keno in the sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. Though a career highlight might be when Ernie played the pesky guy that beat up Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in The Rundown. Recently, Ernie has made appearances in NCIS: Los Angeles.

Ernie needs $75K for the transplant and at this moment people have donated $13k.
