Parker boy on kidney transplant list

Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 11.26.35 AM

An 8 year-old Parker boy is on the list to receive a kidney transplant.

Mason-Ray Corodimas lives with his grandmother Anita Flores and has been on dialysis 3 days a week at the Phoenix Children’s Dialysis Clinic. According to his family there is no definitive answer as to why his kidneys stopped working, but they decreased in function after a diagnosis of elevated creatine levels in 2012.

Over the past two years Mason-Ray has been in the hospital almost every two months for an infection within his catheter site, high potassium levels and for uncontrolled high blood pressures. In July 2014 he had his catheter replaced for the third time.

On August 13th Mason had his kidneys removed in an 8-hour operation. “We are patiently waiting for a kidney,” said Laura Prieto, Mason’s aunt. “Angel Flight helps transport him for his dialysis three times a week. It’s been hard on the little guy, but he is a trooper.”

When Mason receives his new kidneys, he will be required to stay in the Phoenix area for a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks as he recovers and has almost-daily checkups on his kidney function.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family with expenses associated with this time away from home and traveling costs. The page can be viewed HERE.

    Prayers for this little guy..

  6. Very sad to hear all that he has been through and still goes through. I am not working at this time so I can not afford to help by donating money, but I do have A LOT of my sons clothes which he has grown out of and I think they may fit Mason. The clothes are in very good condition, and are nice clothes. I have to be rid of all of these clothes by Friday, so if someone could contact me if they would like them for Mason I would be happy to take them to them or someone who will save them for him. Thoughts and prayers are with Mason!!!
