This is a testament to a mother’s love! When her son couldn’t find transplants, this mom stepped up to give him TWO of her organs…
GoodNewsNetwork.org says that the 4-year-old little boy was born with a condition “known as autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease” He had to have both of his kidneys removed and NOW he has to go to dialysis just to stay alive. On top of that, he had come down with an advanced case of liver disease. That can be fatal without a transplant and he has been on the transplant list for over a year.
Well, his mom has stepped up to give her little boy one of her kidneys and part of her liver!
The mom said: “I’ll be all right, I’m a very optimistic person. If I could do it today I would, the sooner the better. I said to him the other night ‘this is going to be your year Joe [her son’s name]’ and he got excited and said to me ‘I’m getting a new liver and a new kidney!’.”
The liver transplant is set to happen on January the 25th and once they both healed from the procedure, the kidney transplant will happen.
The mom told her son “This year is going to be your year” about 2017!
What a hero mom!
