Liam Hurley

Liam is a local, two-year-old little boy from Fort Walton Beach, FL. Liam was born with Cystic Dysphasia of the Kidneys, which has caused kidney problems since birth. When we first heard from Liam’s family, he only had 20% kidney function, and they were told he must have a kidney transplant to survive. His dad, William, is an employee at Hilton Sandestin and was scheduled to be Liam’s donor. Once they got to Atlanta for the transplant, they found out that Mr. Hurley actually wasn’t a match for Liam, and he had to go through the process of waiting on the transplant list. There is no cure for his kidney disease, but his mom says with the transplant, Liam will be able to live a very long life. Sandestin Foundation for Kids was able to make a donation to the Hurley family to help with some of their mounting medical bills.
UPDATE: Liam just received his new kidney! His mom says he is doing great and recovering very well! They have started his feedings, he has a great appetite and is drinking his water! We couldn’t be happier for the Hurley family, and we will continue to keep you update on Liam’s progress!
