Lamar Odom: Fans Offer to Donate Kidneys to Ailing NBA Star

by at .

Lamar Odom may have recovered miraculously after nearly dying from an overdose last week, but the former NBA star is still far from out of the woods.

The 35-year-old has emerged from his coma, but he's still in a dangerous place, as several of his organs are reportedly not functioning as they should be.


Just last night, it was reported that Odom is in a "fragile mental state" after having undergone several invasive procedures in a short period of time. 

Hospital sources say Odom's most severe issues stem from damage to his kidneys. He remains hooked up to dialysis machines and will almost certainly require a transplant at some point.

Fortunately, a legion of devoted fans has Lamar's back  - and maybe his kidneys.

Yes, TMZ is reporting that dozens of supporters have contacted Odom and Khloe Kardashian through social media in order to offer up their kidneys.

Naturally, many have jokingly (we hope) tweeted that they'd like to sell Lamar a kidney, but even more have simply provided their contact information and blood type in hopes of helping to save Odom's life.

Reps for Odom have not yet replied to any of the offers, but there may come a time when Lamar will need to reach out to a fan and accept the gift of life.
