St. Charles County mom donates kidney to 10-year-old son

WENTZVILLE (KMOV) -- A St. Charles County family has a bit of relief thanks to great medical care, and a great mom.
Doctors determined last January that 10-year-old Jaxson Dreiling had stage 4 chronic kidney disease. He would need a transplant.
Late last summer, the family got some good news. Jaxson’s mom Kate was a match for a kidney donation.
After the successful transplant last month between mom and son, a celebration was held in a Wentzville neighborhood Thursday. Both Jaxson and Kate are doing good but will have to get regular checkups. Jaxson will have to take medication for the rest of his life.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family financially.
