CHEROKEE COUNTY, Okla. — A 9-year-old Oklahoma boy with a rare disease is looking for a kidney.
Dakota Roe suffers from cystinosis which affects all the organs in his body but mainly his kidney.
He’s been fighting the disease since he was 2 years old and recently had to start using a feeding tube.
Dakota’s family told FOX23 if he doesn’t get a new kidney soon he will have to start dialysis. They say they want him to be able to be a normal kid and live a normal life.
Dakota has O-positive blood.
If people want to see if they’re a match they can call the Oklahoma Transplant Center at 405-271-7498.
