Family Stunned at Identity of 12-Year-Old’s Selfless Kidney Donor

Published

on

This week, 12-year-old Kaden Koebcke is recovering from a kidney transplant, which his parents have said was successful.

He looks forward to life without dialysis, which he has been on since he was little after being diagnosed with a kidney disease at age 2.

At age 5, he had his first kidney transplant, with his father acting as donor, but it was unsuccessful.

Now, as he recovers from his first successful transplant, his parents most likely still can’t believe who was willing to step up this time to act as a living donor: his own teacher.

Fox News reports:

A sixth-grader in Georgia is going to get an “unbelievable” gift from his technology teacher Tuesday: a kidney.

William Wilkinson,a teacher at Grace Christian Academy in Powder Springs, is serving as a living donor to his student, Kaden Koebcke, Fox 5 reported Monday.

The 12-year-old’s first kidney transplant — performed when he was five years old with his father donating — didn’t work out.

“It came back so badly that they had to remove it within five days of them putting it in, so that — that definitely didn’t go as planned,” Koebcke, who was diagnosed with a kidney disease at the age of two, told the news station.

Koebcke’s family sought help through a Facebook page called Kaden’s Kidney Search

“With his particular situation, he can’t receive a kidney from a deceased donor, so he is in need of a living kidney donor,” the page explains.

Koebcke’s mother, Cami, will never forget the day Wilkinson visited their home to reveal he had found a perfect match.

“He says, Well, do you guys really wanna know? And we said, Yeah, we wanna know, we wanna thank him,’” she told the station.

“And you know, He’s like, ‘Well, it’s me.’ And I mean it just — I mean … it was unbelievable,” Cami recalled.

On Tuesday, Kaden’s Facebook page was updated to inform followers that the operation was successful, and to ask for continued prayers:

Will's surgery is done and he did well with vital signs stable throughout! The kidney is already over to the other…

LA County Now Lifting Ban On Indoor Worship Services ‘To Align With Recent SCOTUS Rulings’

Published

on

Los Angeles County has decided to finally follow the Constitution and honor the First Amendment right of freedom of religion — a right handed down by God Himself — and lift a ban on indoor church worship services over the weekend after recent Supreme Court rulings in favor of houses of worship. Gee, how nice of them to allow folks to do what God commands them to do and hold services inside a building like normal people. This should never have been something that needed a Supreme Court ruling. The Constitution is pretty clear that the right to freely expression religion is protected. via Daily Wire: “The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will be modified today to align with recent Supreme Court rulings for places of worship,” the county said in a press release Saturday. “Places of worship are permitted to offer faith-based services both indoors and outdoors with mandatory physical distancing and face coverings over both the nose and mouth that must be worn at all times while on site. Places of worship must also assure that attendance does not exceed the number of people who can be accommodated while maintaining a physical distance of six feet between separate households.” “Public Health strongly recommends that places of worship continue to hold services outdoors, with physical distancing and the use of face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community,” the release continued. “Because Los Angeles County is experiencing an unprecedented surge of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, every effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community is critical. This is an absolute win for religious liberty, one of the most important and fundamental rights our republic was established upon. In fact, it was our forefathers seeking after religious…

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…
