The Penguins tweeted a photo of Pritchard and her dad to help reach more people.

“Penguins fan: Seeking holiday miracle,” the tweet said. “We've found a donor before... Can we find another hero to make this fan's Christmas wish come true?”

In March, another Penguins fan, Kelly Sowatsky, was seen with a sign indicating she needed a kidney. She later found a donor, a Delaware man, who also happened to be a Penguins fan.
