6-Year-Old Grand Prairie Boy Donates Liver to Fort-Worth Child

Adriana Nixon was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer called hepatocellular carcinoma in 2019 according to an NBC 5 DFW article from January 9th. In it they say:

“Childhood hepatocellular carcinoma varies significantly worldwide. It is estimated to occur in about one out of two million people per year. According to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, the overall survival rate is less than 30 percent. A patient may become disease-free if treated with the complete removal of the tumor or a liver transplant if the cancer has not spread outside the liver.”

Then, Adriana’s family got that call that every donor list patient hopes to get. The family of 6-Year-Old Jojo King was donating the boy’s liver after his untimely passing according to a Star-Telegram article from February 4th. In it they say:

“After three weeks of waiting, Pederson and Adriana’s father, LeeAndrew Nixon, got the call on Feb. 27 that they needed to be at Children’s Medical Center Dallas within the hour for her transplant. The operation started on Feb. 28 at about 3 a.m., on Adriana’s 7th birthday.”

Even if Jojo’s gone, that young boy who looked up to superheroes got to be someone’s superhero by saving their life.
