Young Girl In Seattle Gets A New Kidney For Halloween
While most children dressed as ghouls and witches and searched out candy in the neighborhood on Halloween. A two-year-old in Seattle, Evelyn Sherman was busy getting the best treat of all. She was getting a new kidney with the opportunity to lead a normal life.
It was her dad who donated the kidney to his daughter. At the Seattle Children's Hospital Evelyn's mom was elated that her daughter was on track to lead a normal life.
"She's never really eaten a meal and enjoyed it, because her kidney disease does something weird with her appetite," her mom said. "I can't wait to see her sit down and enjoy a full meal with us."
The Sherman family found support in the community for the very expensive procedure. They led a campaign called “Trick or Treat for Transplant,” that hoped to raise up to $100,000 of the expected half-million dollar procedure.
