Biography

Leyton was born without an inmune system and had a cord blood transplant. He spent his first 2 years in hospital 150 miles away from his home town. He defied odds and came home when he was 2. He had numerous hospital appointments over the next coming years and alsoore lengthy admissions.
In 2013 Leyton went to hospital for a routine appointment and his bloods showed his kidneys were failing. He was placed on dialysis and put on palliative care.
Once again Leyton defied odds and began the work up to have a kidney transplant. We knew it would be a very difficult transplant with Leyton being so complex.
October 2017 after being on dialysis 3x a week at the hospital for 4 and a half years he was offered an altruistic kidney transplant. 10 days before the operation he was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and lost the chance to have this kidney.
Leyton once again bounced back and 3 months after that he was offered another kidney. He spent 4 weeks in hospital after the kidney transplant which was on 5th January this year. He lost the kidney one calendar month later and returned back to dialysis. 5 years this April he has been having dialysis and we are uncertain if another transplant will ever be possible again.
