Hospital Denies 2-Year-Old Life-Saving Surgery Because of Dad's Probation Violation

But Anthony Dickerson Sr.can't donate his organ to his son A.J. because he recently violated his probation. The surgery was booked to occur on October 3, however Emory University Hospital educated the family about a difference in plans after Anthony Dickerson's most recent capture, AJCdotcom detailed.

Dickerson has had several run-ins with the law. He was arrested by authorities in Gwinnett County. He was released this month on a $2,600 bond.

Dickerson, who was already on probation over numerous charges, including theft and forgery, was arrested September 28 on charges of possession of a firearm and fleeing or attempting to elude police, said Shannon Volkodav, a spokeswoman for Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office.

Anthony Dickerson Jr., the child, was born without his kidneys and was due to get his father's left one. A letter to the Gwinnett County jail from Emory's Kidney and Pancreas Transplant Program requested his temporary release. He not only also needs bladder surgery, he suffered a stroke two months ago.

On the other hand, the parents claim that the hospital should not punish AJ because of the mistakes of his father. "And I finally got him, and he's in this situation". Two-year-old AJ was born a month early and without a working kidney, WGCL reports.

When he got out for the second time, officials at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta said he'd need to wait longer before he can donate.

'He's been through a lot.

"That's all I ever wanted was a son", Dickerson told the television station.




"They're making this about his dad", Carmellia Burgess, the infant's mother, told the channel. The patient is just two years old.

The hospital told the couple it would not proceed with the transplant before Dickerson showed he was in compliance with the terms of his parole.

"The Living Donor Team at Emory has asked Mr. Dickerson of consistence from his probation officer for the following three months", the indicated letter stated, as indicated by WTSPdotcom.

'We will re-evaluate Mr. Dickerson in January 2018 after receipt of his completed documentation'.

In a statement to CBS 46, Emory Healthcare said it can not discuss specific aspects of patient cases but commented that organ transplant procedures are created to ensure success for the recipients.

January might be too late to save AJ, according to his mother. He also needs a kidney.

When contacted, the hospital said it would not comment on this specific case, though it did outline its policies regarding organ donors.

"Rules for organ transplantation are meant to amplify the shot of progress for organ beneficiaries and limit chance for living benefactors", Janet Christenbury, a clinic representative, told AJC.com.
