Adrian was born nearly two months premature, so his kidneys did not form properly. Facing chronic kidney failure, Adrian underwent dialysis treatment at Children’s Colorado four hours a day, four days a week, for 12 straight years. Finally, in 2017, Adrian’s dreams came true when he was matched with a new donor kidney. After a successful transplant last year, Adrian is now able to enjoy the life of a normal 14-year-old. He’s a great student who loves soccer and football. Update its been 1 year 5 months with my kidney transplant feeling great blessed living my normal life to the fullest. No more dialysis, Full time high school student.
