ATLANTA - A wonderful update about a 13-year-old who was desperately in need of a kidney. Kindcaid Eaker now has that new kidney and he's out of intensive care unit and doing great.
That's according to his grandmother, who spoke with FOX 5 News on Monday at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
Kincaid was born with a genetic disorder called polycystic kidney disease and was supposed to undergo a kidney transplant in 2016.
His original donor was his mother, but she was murdered by her husband, leaving Kincaid without parents and that life-saving organ.
Fast forward to this holiday season, he received a call on Christmas Day that there was a donor match.
Kincaid's grandmother said she doesn't know where the kidney came from but her family plans to find out and connect with the donor's family to say thank you.
