11-year-old Khloe from Upper Township Needs an Angel
An 11-year-old South Jersey girl should be playing with her friends, fighting with her sisters, going to school, riding horses.
11-year-old Khloe Sudal of Steelmantown, Upper Township does all that and more.
Unfortunately, the "more" is Khloe is fighting kidney disease. According to Khloe's mom, Heather, Khloe has Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS). She's currently being treated with chemotherapy treatments every 8 weeks. She's been on dialysis for 15 months.
Bottom line: Khloe needs a new kidney.
Right now, Heather says Khloe is doing well, but she gets tired easily.
Now comes the BIG ASK: Would you be willing to donate one of your kidneys to Khloe?
Khloe has just been approved for St. Christopher's Hospital for Children's living donor program. The Philadelphia hospital is ready to help once a donor is found. (Khloe is also on the deceased donor list.)
Here's what's required of any potential donors: You must be over the age of 18 and healthy. Khloe's blood type is A Positive, so you must be A Positive or O blood type.
There is a screening process, and once approved the donor's surgery would take place at Temple University Hospital, while Khloe's surgery would be at St. Christopher's.
If you would like to be an angel, and find out if you could possibly donate a kidney for Khloe, you can call St. Christopher's Transplant Coordinator at 215-707-8889.
