Our Story

Levi was born on October 2, 2015 to Andrew and Danielle Boyter. Prior to this we knew that Levi's kidneys were not developing the way they should. We were referred to specialists in Charlotte who closely monitored Danielle through the last part of her pregnancy. After Levi was born, he was closely monitored for proper kidney function. When he was a week old, Levi was transferred to Levine Children's Hospital due to his kidneys not functioning. Within a couple of days he went into surgery for a peritoneal dialysis catheter to be placed along with a feeding tube. This started our three month stay in the NICU where Levi was started on peritoneal dialysis. Once this was regulated and could be managed by a machine at home, we were released! From that point on Levi has been growing and turning into an incredible little guy.

Levi had his kidney transplant on January 17, 2018 and is now 3 years old! He is an incredibly engaging, outgoing, ball of energy. He will take every opportunity to be around and get to know new people. His favorite things to do revolve around seeing any kind of rescue vehicle, playing with trains, and being with friends. 

We cannot wait to see how the Lord continues to use this challenge in Levi's life for his good. We look forward to keeping you updated about Levi's journey. Thank you for any and all support you are able to give through a donation to COTA on Levi's behalf or through prayers.
