Yulia Hicks, a child who was denied a kidney transplant by Duke Children’s Hospital last year, will finally be receiving the life-saving operation at another North Carolina hospital.
The teen has a genetic kidney disorder that requires a transplant, but her family said last year that Duke was refusing to put Yulia on the kidney wait list because she is unvaccinated against COVID. Notably, the family says Yulia has already recovered from the virus.
“We are thrilled to announce our daughter Yulia Hicks will finally be receiving her kidney transplant at another North Carolina hospital, on Thursday,” Chrissy Hicks, Yulia’s mother, exclusively told The Daily Wire on Monday. “She was denied her transplant at Duke University due to our refusal to give her the COVID vaccine.”
