This is Heartbreaking 💔😔🙏🏽🙏🏽
(Via #NYDN ): "#AJBurgess was born a month early and without kidneys, #Atlanta -based CBS station #WGCL reported. His father, #AnthonyDickerson , was a perfect match to donate one of his kidneys. But after Dickerson served time in prison for violating probation, #EmoryHospital in Atlanta reportedly refused to perform the surgery.
Emory hospital told the family that Dickerson had to be on good behavior for three to four months before he could donate his kidney and that they will re-evaluate him in 2018, according to the report.
A.J.’s mother Carmella worries that waiting until 2018 may be too late for her young son. She told #CBS news that A.J. needs bladder surgery and his body is failing."...Thoughts?! 🤔🤔💜💜 #breakingnews#cbsnews#kidneytransplant#smh#sosad#probation#atl#surgery#2018#kelliebrewofficial
Aspiring transplant surgeon and @UofWA undergrad Wade Washington works on the #kidney -on-a-chip at the @KidneyResearchInstitute, a collaboration between Northwest Kidney Centers and @UWMedicine. The chip uses human kidney cells to test how the organ is affected by medications.

What even is real? 🤷♀️ The way I see it is every pose in this video plus a million others I could come up with are real. I can make my butt look plump, full, and muscular but I can also make it look flat, fat, and full of cellulite. I can make it to where it's seems I have no scars on my stomach and that my tummy is completely flat, which in the moments where you can't see my scars and my stomach is flat that's true to you. So many perspectives, so realities, so many opinions. So what's real? I think most people will say your "relaxed" self is the real self. But honestly all of these are real and I look way worse and way better than all of these in just a week. So the truth is stop trying to look a certain way 24/7 because that isn't real. You'll change in just a couple hours. Be happy with what you have. And strive for what you want to feel. Who cares what people say!!! I hope you feel beautiful to yourself because you are no matter what. #everyBODYisbeautiful#selfie#video#transformation#fit#thin#chubby#booty 🍑 #abs#scars#health#fitness#selflove#inspo#journey#acceptance#recovery#kidneytransplant#love#positivevibes#girl#woman#reality#perspective

Got this guy out of house over the weekend for a little family time at the pumpkin patch. Amazing how fast 12 weeks have gone since transplant! This moment would not have been possible without a living donor. Please consider being a living donor or make sure to register to be an organ donor. We are the face of what organ donation means!
