A 13-year-old Georgia boy, who lost both his parents, now needs a kidney to save his life.
Kincaid Eaker is a fighter. He was born with a genetic disorder called polycystic kidney disease, the same disease that took his older brothers as infants.
And his mother, Audra Eaker, had been tested and planned to donate a kidney to him. But the whole family was devastated when her husband Darrell shot Audra in the face numerous times, killing her in 2016.
Darrell was sentenced to life in prison without parole, plus a further 16 years.
So, Kincaid and his older sister Olivia now live with their grandparents in Tennessee, Tribune Ledger News reported.
More recently, the Kincaid’s kidney function has been declining. His kidney only functions at 14% of what it should, his family reported.
So, Brandy Love, a longtime family friend and also Audra’s best friend, has made it her life’s mission to help Kincaid find a donor.
She has established a GoFundMe page to help the boy find a kidney.
“I feel that with the passing of my best friend this is what I can do to honor her life,” Love wrote on the GoFundMe page.
“I just have to support them, there’s no other way. I wouldn’t be doing anything else, because their lives were so intertwined with ours for so many years,” Love said.
