Wish geauxcoco’s Tiger family well this morning
Tried searching for his thread but couldn’t find it.

He posted here a month or two ago about his two year old daughter that was getting a kidney transplant. He linked some news articles about her story as well as his gofundme, which was originally for 5k but it looks like they ended up raising almost 30


What he didn’t post here was that he was the donor, and would be out of work (he is a teacher) for several months as well.


I got an email alert this morning that the transplant is this morning, going on right now actually.


Here is the email his wife sent out and a link to the gofundme if anyone is still interested in donating that missed it the first time.

A kidney for Katie

quote:

have been getting questions about what has been going on, and I'm so sorry I haven't posted updates recently....here is what has been going on since the family got to Charleston:

Soon after the family got there, Katie had to get a blood transfusion as they could not keep her blood count up. Due to this, the transplant was postponed temporarily. They had to wait a few weeks to test her blood to see if she was still a match with Drew (it takes that long for antibodies to show up after a transfusion). There was still a chance Drew would be a match, but the odds were not as good as before. On top of that she had been very nauseous as they were trying to get her nutrition just right.

Katie started doing better and was finally keeping some food down. She was getting all of her food through a feeding tube. The doctors felt that she was not healthy enough for a transplant then and with proper nutrition/dialysis they would get there soon.

A few days ago the family found out that Drew is still a match! AMAZING!!! The transplant is tomorrow at 7:30 am! Positive thoughts and prayers go out to the Duffey family tomorrow!

Yeah, I hate seeing anything like this about kids. Makes me feel like a shitty person for not being more thankful for what I have.

Wow, what an amazing sacrifice that he no doubt prayed he'd be able to give. We'd all give every last piece of us, figuratively and literally, to save our kids, but to actually go through with it is a heartwarming and touching act. Brought a tear to my eye.

Well done, sir. I'll be praying for a successful procedure and a complete recovery for both Drew and Katie.
