Life-changing surgery is on hold for a 2-year-old boy. His mom says it’s because of red tape between the hospital and police. She is fighting to change that.

Her son has no kidneys. He was born without them.

A.J. does have a willing donor who is a perfect match — yet he is left waiting. A.J.’s dad, Anthony Dickerson, is a perfect match.

“That’s all I ever wanted — was a son,” Anthony said. “And I finally got him, and he’s in this situation.”

Anthony was scheduled to donate his left kidney to A.J., their miracle baby. Mom Carmella Burgess was excited.
