PHILADELPHIA — There is an update on former WNEP reporter Allen Vickers. At 31 years old, his kidneys are failing, and he needs a transplant.

Jefferson Health, a hospital in the Philadelphia area, just called Allen to share some big news.

Since our story aired last week, 25 people have signed up to donate a kidney.
