By Whitney Grunder - bio | email

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – For years KTRE has followed the story of a 17-year-old East Texas boy in search of a kidney.

After years of waiting, Adam McCleskey has received his kidney transplant, and according to his mother the procedure went well.

The McCleskey family is in Baltimore and tells us they are waiting on a biopsy to determine how his body is taking the new kidney.

They tell us they are very thankful for the overwhelming amount of support and prayers from this community.
