Covid-19 destroys 9-year-old’s kidneys, forces mum to donate hers

A woman from West Sussex, UK has decided to donate her kidney to save her nine-year-old daughter’s life after the latter suffered kidney failure upon contracting Covid-19 last year.

Amanda Conway, who is a finance manager, had to start a fundraiser to throw a birthday party for her daughter, Beth Conway, before she undergoes the surgery. Amanda told The Mirror that Beth has had a kidney condition called C3 her whole life, which the family believes was made worse by her Covid infection.

The condition causes the immune system to attack the kidneys whenever a person catches a cough or a cold. Beth has been in and out of the hospital since January this year and now needs dialysis seven days a week.
