2-Year-Old Echo Brock Inspires Kidney Disease Awareness With First Pitch

A 2-year-old boy named Echo Brock is raising awareness for Kidney Disease and the need for a kidney transplant by throwing the first pitch at a baseball game. Brock was born with underdeveloped kidneys, leading to the development of Kidney Disease. His school, Spring Creek Charter Academy, honored him for his fight against the disease and held a pre-game ceremony to raise awareness. March is Kidney Awareness Month, and the event aimed to shed light on the disease and the importance of the transplant that Brock needs to have a full healthy life.

Brock currently undergoes a blood-filtering treatment called Peritoneal Dialysis, which requires him to be connected to a dialysis machine for 10 hours every day. However, with a kidney transplant, he will no longer need this treatment. It is important to note that transplanted kidneys have a lifespan of 15-20 years, so Brock will require multiple transplants in his lifetime. To support him in his journey, his parents have started a medical fund to ensure that he has the necessary finances for his ongoing treatment.

If you would like to help Echo Brock and his family, you can donate to his medical fund at cotaforechosjourney.com. Additionally, if you are a potential match for a kidney transplant, you can visit emorylivingdonor.org to find out if you can be his donor. Echo has an A+ blood type, and potential donors with A or O blood types can be considered. The family appreciates the support they have received from their community and emphasizes the importance of having a strong support system during their time of need.
