Two year old to receive a kidney from each parent

A two year old, Stephen Carr's life hangs between life and death, suffering an extremely rare condition called renal tubular acidosis, that requires a double kidney transplant, which will give him a new lease of life. The kid's parents fortunately have the perfect match, so they will be donating a kidney each.

Mrs Carr, who has three other children, said: "As parents we felt so helpless, especially as you're used to doing everything for your children. But now things are looking very hopeful as we can give him a chance to live. We never thought he would come this far, and even though doctors can't tell us what will happen to Stephen, we're still really lucky both to be perfect donors. Doctors are now monitoring his kidney and they'll tell us when the first transplant is likely to go ahead."
