Dear MoveOn member,
A.J. is a 2-year-old in dire need of a kidney transplant from his father, but Emory University Hospital says they won't do it until next year because his dad recently violated probation. The situation is more urgent than ever because A.J. was rushed to the emergency room last weekend after contracting a life-threatening infection.1
Even though A.J.'s father Anthony is a 100% donor match, the hospital says he needs to be on 'good behavior' for three months before they will perform the surgery to save his child.2
