John Nucci’s kidney transplant shines light on need for donors

As John Nucci undergoes kidney transplant surgery today, advocates and doctors say there is a vital need for more donors — a cause the former city councilor says he will champion when he recovers.

Nucci, 66, of East Boston, was due to go under the knife early this morning at Massachusetts General Hospital alongside family friend Kerri Abrams, 37, of Arlington, who is donating one of her kidneys to him.
