4-year-old girl to be youngest in family to receive kidney transplant
Piper Dougall was born with just her right kidney, which currently is only functioning between 4 and 8 percent. In December, doctors determined she needed a transplant. Kidney concerns are not new for the Dougall family. Piper’s grandma had two kidney transplants before she passed last year. Plus, Piper's dad Tim received a kidney from her mom back in 2014 before they were married. Since then, Tim has also beat papillary thyroid cancer twice. The full extent of kidney troubles being hereditary is unclear, but evident.
