Austin Taylor, who was born with numerous birth defects, had struggled with stage 5 kidney failure — undergoing a kidney transplant a couple of years ago to try to save his life, according to Fox affiliate KSTU. Since then, he has been on expensive medications to keep his tiny body from rejecting the organ. Days before Christmas, a three-month supply was delivered, then stolen from his front porch, Taylor said.
"Someone Stole a Child's Parcel Off His Porch. It Contained His Kidney Transplant Medication." is from the December 22, 2017 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Lindsey Bever and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
