Wadena boy and family hoping to find kidney transplant donor
WADENA, Minn. - Patrick Sibert needs a kidney. And he needs it soon.
The 14-year-old Wadena boy is on borrowed time with his one kidney -- and he wasn't even born with that one. It was transplanted from his mother, Laura Uselman, when Patrick was 16 months old.
"He was born with one kidney at 20 percent function," said Laura, who along with her husband, Rick, are shaking every tree trying to find a donor for Patrick.
