Local Army vet to get new kidney after more than a year

- For more than a year FOX 46 has been working to get results for an army veteran in need of a new kidney.

Tuesday night, Edmund called the FOX 46 newsroom with an exciting development— he finally received the call he’s been waiting for.

Edmund hopped in the car and headed straight to Wake Forest Hospital where he will undergo surgery at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday after doctors told him that an organ donor who recently passed away is a perfect match for him.

He sent us a photo of him in the hospital waiting room Tuesday evening. We are wishing Edmund a smooth surgery and a quick recovery!
