Donor dad hopes to give his daughter a kidney
Jun 12 2008 by Daniel Perrin, Gwent Gazette
AN ANXIOUS father is awaiting the go-ahead to donate one of his kidneys to his poorly daughter.
David Tilley, of Waunheulog, Nantyglo, needs to pass a fitness test before he will be approved for the operation in which one of his kidneys will be transplanted into daughter Danielle.
Fourteen-year-old Danielle was discovered to have suffered complete kidney failure a year ago when she was given a blood test at Nevill Hall Hospital after falling ill.
She now spends every evening on a home dialysis machine and has tight restrictions on her food and drink intake, being limited to no more than a couple of millilitres of liquid a day.
