Let this little boy get his transplant.
It is abundantly clear that Burgess—who was born without working kidneys—needs a transplant immediately. His father is a perfect match, and was set to give A.J. a kidney on October 3rd. Unfortunately, Dickerson was arrested for possessing a firearm during the commission of a crime. He’s been released from prison, but hospital officials now say they will wait another three months to decide whether to accept Dickerson’s kidney donation.
“We will reevaluate Mr. Dickerson in January 2018 after receipt of his completed documentation,” Emory University hospital told the family.
