Description

Join us for an evening of games, face painting, music, & good food!
Proceeds will benefit COTA (Children's Organ Transplant Association) in honor of Levi Boyter. Levi was born on October 2, 2015 to Andrew and Danielle Boyter. Prior to this the family knew that Levi's kidneys were not developing the way they should. They were referred to specialists in Charlotte who closely monitored Danielle through the last part of the pregnancy. After Levi was born, he was closely monitored for proper kidney function. When he was a week old, Levi was transferred to Levine Children's Hospital due to his kidneys not functioning. Within a couple of days he went into surgery for a peritoneal dialysis catheter to be placed along with a feeding tube. This started the three month stay in the NICU where Levi was started on peritoneal dialysis. Once this was regulated and could be managed by a machine at home, Levi was released! From that point on Levi has been growing and turning into an incredible little guy. He faces challenges due to kidney failure and the effects of dialysis on his little body, but you wouldn't know it if you met him. Levi recently underwent a kidney transplant surgery & is recovering well at home.
