Local Girl Doing Well
A Johnson City girl is doing well after undergoing a kidney transplant for complications from a rare disease. Piper Smith’s family says the girl is doing very well and that kidney has started to work. Piper suffers from Shimke’s Osseous Displasia, a disease that causes those who suffer from it to be small in stature and that eventually leads to kidney problems. This is Piper’s second attempt at a donor transplant, her donor is said to be in pain, but doing well. Smith is the second child in the tri-cities that was known to have Shimke’s disease, Josh Adcock died earlier this year while awaiting a transplant. (CC)
