Des Moines, Iowa, March 22, 2013 – Before he was even born, Teddy Reid’s parents knew there was a problem with his kidneys. What they didn’t know, however, was just how severe the issue was.

When he was just six days old, Teddy’s parents learned he was in kidney failure and would need a kidney transplant. Although he is on the transplant waiting list, he cannot receive his transplant until he gains enough weight to sustain the operation.
