Chance the Rapper is using social media to call on his followers to spread the word about a dire situation affecting his family.
The musician took to Twitter on Thursday to reveal his aunt is in desperate need of a kidney transplant.
He pleaded, “I really need help. My Auntie Toni is one of the strongest forces in my life, and she is in dire need of a #kidney. We have exhausted all options and have been wait listed for years. My family believes in the power of prayer and we give this problem up to God.”
In addition to asking for help, he also said, “A prayer really goes a long way.” Chance shared details regarding his auntie’s health, saying, “I’m sorry it was a lil overwhelmingly emotion writing this, Her blood type is O positive, you can get a quick blood test and physical to find your a match.”

It appears some fans are already offering to help.
The Grammy-winning artist is currently preparing to release a new album this summer. He dropped a single called “Groceries” this month and recently collaborated with Ed Sheeran for “Cross Me,” off Sheeran’s upcoming album. Chance is expecting baby number two with wife Kristen Corley, and he took the time on Mother’s Day to express his gratitude for the relationship.
He wrote, “Marriage is dope cause I get to live with a mama forever. Not my mama, but it damn near feels like it sometimes. Thank you bringing Kensli into this world but also for occasionally being a mommy to me.”
On Wednesday he shared a video promoting “Groceries,” in which he thanked his longtime fans, and shouted out his auntie.
