AJ Dickerson

A story about a little boy who is in dire need of a kidney transplant is tugging at heart strings. Little A.J. Dickerson was born without a working kidney. The premie spent the first 10 months of his life in neonatal intensive care.

For two years A.J. has been dependent on tube feeding and daily dialysis to keep him alive.

According to his mother, Carmelia Burgess, A.J.'s health is failing and he needs a kidney transplant "as soon as possible" to save his life.

Complicating the story even further is the boy's ex-con father, Anthony Dickerson, who is a perfect fit for a kidney donation, but he can't stay out of prison long enough to donate a kidney to his son.

Anthony Dickerson Carmelia Burgess

Dickerson was released from prison earlier this year -- and he went through pre-op procedures to donate his kidney -- only to go right back into prison for violating his probation.

Emory hospital has since declined to perform the complex operation due to Dickerson's multiple probation violations, according to WGCL-TV's Karyn Greer.

Dickerson is a repeat felon with an extensive criminal rap sheet that includes armed robbery and possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of multiple felonies.

After Burgess took her story to the local news media, Emory hospital agreed to perform the surgery IF Dickerson can stay out of jail for three months (January 2018).

According to the AJC.com, Emory hospital even requested an early release from jail for Dickerson to perform the necessary blood work and other procedures for the Oct. 3 operation.

“If Mr. Dickerson could be escorted to Emory for blood work and a pre-operative appointment tomorrow, September 29, we will be able to continue with the scheduled surgery,” an Emory official said in the letter dated Sept. 28.

But Dickerson was not released from jail until October 2 -- too late to perform blood work and other pre-op for such a complex surgery that was scheduled for the next day.

Not to mention surgery as complex as a kidney transplant would require at least 2 teams of doctors and nurses -- one team to remove the kidney from Dickerson and the other team to transplant the kidney into A.J.

It takes time to put such teams together. It simply can not be done in one day.

A.J.'s doctors are better qualified than news reporters to determine whether A.J. can survive until January for his operation.

    So.. what's so hard with the father getting his "act" together so his son can have a better quality of life? Smh

  • Karen Brady

    JESUS CHRIST..all of you just do what needs to be done in order to save this sick CHILD!!!

  • Yoni7

    So they just can't take the kidney and he finish his time? WTF. This world is ate the entire fukk up, I SWEAR!

    Can we get a post about the federal response in Puerto Rico. Namely, the Spa Day that National Disaster Medical System's disaster reilief ship employees enjoyed while they were supposed to be out there saving lives.

    I don't remember who posted this below, but if you post it, credit that person. Thanks in advance.

  • Guest

    Nope there are strict guidelines for who can be a living donor. They have to protect not only the child's life but his. If he is in and out of jail he may not be able to receive the necessary after care. Plus you have to worry about any infections he may contract while in there.

  • Mark mcharm

    Enough with the puerto rico story .

  • Yoni7

    Honestly, I'm not really worried about HIM, per se'. It's more for the baby. If he has a perfect kidney, give it to the baby and do wtf you want afterwards. I really don't care.

  • thrift.store.jungle

    this one hits home for me. i hate to hear that bureaucracy and red tape may be getting in the way of saving a life. best wishes to the family.

  • free

    i want to be mad at emory--and they fuggin deserve it! but this mofo. it's HIS CHILD!!! bro, all you got to do is the right thing! emory needs to be the better "person" in all of this though.

    SR, your writeup makes a little more sense now because i had to report for pre-op bloodwork and it's true that they have a certain timeframe for these things to happen. it had to be timed a certain way for whatever reasons, i forgot.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I feel like there is information missing from this story? What does the hospital have to do with what happens to the man AFTER they perform the surgery? If follow up appointments are medically required, even any if he does get locked up, the jail would HAVE to take him to his appointments or face a wrongful death charge. He's out of jail now. Perform the damn surgery and save that child's life.

  • Noirluv45

    Sadly, the government hasn't even dealt with the water crisis in Flint, MI. SMH.

    i was about to say... fugg him! die! and take the other kidney and give it to his son.

  • stevetheque

    Always passing the buck. Stay your dumb azz out of jail! What's so hard about that? You had rules you had to follow. There was a possibility you would not be out in time for the blood work to be complete. Ignorant MF!!!

  • Noirluv45

    I hate to say, but the jail doesn't have to do anything they don't want to. They routinely allow inmates to die. I think since it's a process, he can't be trusted to keep his tail out of jail.

  • Karen Brady

    I just can't understand the times we're living in! Compassion people and humanity!! Literally sitting here shaking my head.

  • Guest

    Jails are rife with tuberculosis, hepatitis etc. Everytime he goes there he risks his child's life because the baby already has a compromised immune system. It sucks but he needs to care about his kid as much as you do.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    so.... they can't 'handle' him as they would any other inmate who required hospitalization? put him on "house arrest" whilst in the hospital??? (or they thinking he gonna wait 'til they tape up that one remaining kidney and he gonna make a run for it when the recovery room nurses change shifts?) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9eb2b76e506e38d5072dd1cf3ad262774eb5ffcb7856de93eefa3205f33fbcb1.gif https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5a16feb7886870b58e876a7ffc6b264e7419e743bb55ec579123b82d4a427799.gif

    SR's story is a little better than what's out there because it talks about the timeline more. i've had major surgery and they do explain the shyt. her write-up reminded me all the appointments are scheduled in advance and it's very systematic. that stupid azz nigro knew what was up but still violated anyway.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Incorrect. They are required to provide adequate medical service per the Eighth Amendment to the US Constitution. There is case law (US Supreme Court) that clearly defines adequate medical care.

  • Yoni7

    Is all I'm sayin'. LOL

  • free

    maybe because it's not pre-existing? i can see if you go in with a certain illness or develop it while in prison but this is different.

  • Noirluv45

    Since when does the government follow the Constitution. They do what they want. I know for a fact many an inmate has died in prison regardless of his/her ailment. The Constitution also says people should be from from illegal searches and such, but they routinely dismiss them.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Well, they should hire an attorney. The fact remains that they jail DOES have to do something. There are plenty of cases of people suing because they did not receive medical treatment. Smh.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    He was released on October 2nd. He's not in prison now. So if they perform the surgery and he goes to jail later on, it will be a pre-existing condition? No?

  • Noirluv45

    True, they most definitely should sue, but fighting big government isn't that easy especially if a person cannot afford "the right" attorney. It's a dang shame!

    i think the state of georgia is being sued right now cause one MD was withholding hospital visits. i remember one jail that kept a chick (might be georgia) from ONE PILL--a laxative. didn't give it to her until too late and chick died from sh!t hardening up in her intestines and i think it busted and she had septic whatever. can you imagine the pain?

  • Noirluv45

    They do. She's had more than one go to the ER. They get checked, decide the issue isn't emergent and send them back.

    OMG! That poor woman, and no I cannot imagine what she went through. I hope her family members own that hospital! I'm telling you, the hospitals/doctors in this day and age are absolute morons. The hospital killed my mom and almost killed me because after surgery, they didn't recognize dehydration. SMH!

  • Str8tUpMenace

    This is fawked up on so many levels. I don't give a damn about the dad's record, especially when the system itself is corrupt as shyt. That baby shouldn't have to suffer.

  • Noirluv45

    The system is major corrupt!

  • Noirluv45

    What about post-op appointments? If he's in jail, how can they follow up? So you're basically saying that after the surgery, they can follow up while he's in prison. I don't know if it works that way.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Im not gonna judge the dad, simply because i dont know of his history, and honestly, I could careless, because it shouldn't matter. Folks need to keep in mind that the just-us system is screwed. They claim you're innocent til proven guilty, however, your ass usually has to sit in jail to try to prove it. And a lot of people plead out to lesser charges rather than taking their chances with a jury that is truly NOT of their peers.

What's so pathetic about it, is that black women from the ones who work at Popeyes too the future dusty single Parent that are currently at Georgia State University are choosing to procreate with thugs and felons. Count down to 85% of African American women will be single Parents.

  • stevetheque

    But this azz clown didn't have to be there! He couldn't follow gd instructions. That's the point I'm making.. Now it's cry me a river!

  • TheOwley

    The main problem rests with the father and his inability to stay clean. Let's say he does go through the process and the surgery is performed which is great for the child. The father would have one kidney and if he ends up in prison again, he would be a medical risk. One punch to the kidney from a fellow inmate and that's that.

  • Noirluv45

    I'm so glad you brought up the feed tube, Sandra. I wondered, "Why don't they just replace it." My dad had a feeding tube and that's what they did for him.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Exactly right. The surgery was scheduled months ago. Then the loser father went to jail. Now the mother is playing the sympathy card because the surgery was rescheduled. The father is to blame, not the hospital.

    I thought he was Clavo Cruz from CSI Miami. This is straight B. S. All these hurdles & conditions. Cap his ass wound him but don't kill him and save that boy!!! I have CKD stageIV damaged by high blood pressure that was not treated. So please regardless of age keep a check on your BP. Don't wait for the doc because for years they would say "Wow your BP is high do you take BP medication? Several doctors in various specialists noticed did nothing. Went to Patient First for something totally different. Minutes later all these people running in. Someone said take these (aspirin), started taking blood, hooked me up to EKG. Doc said how do you feel? Then the damn paramedics come in. I was like hey I'm here for a sprain you got the wrong room. Doc said your BP is 200 over something. I can't let you leave your being transported to the hospital. They could not bring it down it was in the 190's. I had no headache, no signs. That's why they call it the silent killer. That's when I found out about my kidneys. Had a biopsy now just frequent blood work, diet, and BP meds, no dialysis So please please please monitor your BP. Your not too young to have BP issues. Hopefully you can prevent damage to your kidneys. And limit how much ibuprofen you take.

PLEASE [ESPECIALLY BLACK PEOPLE] GO CHECK YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE AND TAKE IT SERIOUSLY., Luckily my husband survived with minimal side effects [Thanks be to God] but he only found out he had high BP 2 months prior and did not get any meds.... that cost him 3 months in the hospital, in a coma and had to learn how to do everything again.

  • Coffee1st

    Where did they say that the surgery was scheduled months ago? Your write up and the first write up I read on this are stating two different things. My understanding is that a surgery was never scheduled in the first place.
    Why would you say that about the mother. If she's playing the sympathy card, she has every right to!! She has a very ill child whose life is hanging in the balance. Who deserves a sympathy card more than someone in her position. When your child is facing death and there's a cure, you won't give a nmad who's fault it is - YOU JUST WANT YOUR CHILD TO BE SAVED.

  • Coffee1st

    Thank you. My husband of 20 yrs got slapped with two felonies a year before we got married. His rights were violated 10 different ways. He had no defense and pled guilty. It was a non violent crime, he hasn't got in trouble before or after AND has been an amazing father and husband. My point is, minorities and the poor get totally screwed by this country's justice system. You can't always look at a person's criminal history and form a valid opinion of them.

  • Diva4lyfe

    Thank you for sharing. I get on my husband so bad, they put him on the meds then he wants to listen to the wanna be Dr's who say oh take this and you don't have to use your BP meds. We have a 5 yr old and I am like if you don't want to do it for yourself then do it for him and if that is not enough let me check these insurance papers. People really don't realize how serious this issue is. My Dr be like we checked you why are you getting checked again because I want to is my answer. I have a real good friend we was at work and luckily we work at the VA but she was like she feel light headed so I was like ok lets go around to the ER to have them check you real quick her BP was in the 200's and they rushed her out because they couldn't get it down and they wanted to make sure she didn't have bleeding on the brain. Luckily she listened to everything they said and is doing better. She has 3 kids and a husband and they was all thankful that I made her go be seen the Dr told her if she didn't come in she could be dead so that is why this is such a serious matter. And another thing them Dr know they love to give out Motrin. I tell them I can't take it nor do I take Naprosyn nope won't do it. You take care and I wish you well. Be Blessed

    That's retarded. I get the protocol for such a complicated surgery but if he's in jail or whatever he should be escorted to the hospital/pre op appointment at least for the child's sake. As for him, he is also a retard. Dude stay out of jail. Your child's life is at stake. Obviously Mom doesn't need his crime money and is taking care of everything by herself. Go on your retard crime sprees after he gets the kidney. I believe regardless of the fact that Dad is a tard there are ways around this so this boy's life can be saved.

    Straight up evil ppl on here. "She knew he was a loser." "She shouldn't have had kids with him."

    This child is dying. Y'all attack black women every day. Send love this woman's way. The world is so wicked and y'all feed right into the negativity. Realize that the system that has routinely worked against our black men is now indirectly impacting the future of this little boy.

    Probation violations are tricky. He could have missed a report, be behind on fees, etc. Y'all are so quick to judge without being fully educated.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    No loss of focus, but a notice about the fact that the father can't keep himself out of jail (causing a broken home). Also kids are 50% more likely to go to jail or prison if they have a family member there. (horrible example) yet, it appears that the short periods he is out they have another child.
    I do sincerely hope they find another donor since the father is trifling

    EXACTLY!! That was my point earlier. Based on the original post, surgery was scheduled. The idiot father got caught with a weapon while on probation and now is in jail so his son suffers even more. He's LITERALLY playing with his son's life..
