Local boy with kidney disease gets ready for Kidney Walk
SALISBURY, Md. – This weekend, hundreds of people will lace up their shoes and hit the pavement for the annual Kidney Walk in Salisbury.
One of the people who will be attending is Kaiden Davis, a 10-year-old from Berlin who has stage 2 kidney disease.
At the beginning of his life, Kaiden had to take five to six medications a day just to function, but now, his kidney’s have stabilized.
At some point in his life, Kaiden will need a kidney transplant but in the meantime, he and his mom Tiahna are attending events like the Kidney Walk in Salisbury to raise awareness about kidney illnesses. The hope is that this might save someone’s life since kidney problems can easily go unnoticed.
Tiahna Davis said, “It’s more of a silent disease. It progresses rather slow and most people don’t realize they have it until they hit the end stage because they don’t know the symptoms and things like that.”
The Kidney Walk will be taking place at Winterplace Park in Salisbury on Sunday.
