    New Rules Mean Kidneys For Chronic Patients

    Changes to transplant waiting list rules means patients who once were thought impossible to match are now getting the organs they need. Marshall Jones is one of the first patients to receive a kidney transplant since the rule change. 

    With severely damaged kidneys and a failed transplant, this eight-year-old Virginia native had very slim chances of finding a match: His body was likely to reject kidneys from 99 percent of donors. Years spent searching for a match found nothing. But with these new policies, Marshall finally got his life-saving kidney. 

    Marshall’s doctor, Victoria Norwood, MD, says "We don't use the word lightly, but this was really a miracle kidney for him.”

    From NICU to College: Savannah Tucker's Story

    Savannah Tucker was born with a rare skull deformity called craniosynostosis, also known as clover leaf skull. At just days old, she was airlifted from West Virginia to UVA for care.

    Over the next several years, Savannah underwent over 20 surgeries. Further diagnosed with additional conditions including hydrocephalus, stroke and cerebral palsy, her initial prognosis was grim; doctors warned her family that she might not ever be able to walk.  

    Savannah says she has grown up at UVA, receiving care from a team of doctors from neurosciences, plastic surgery and orthopedics.
