A selfless Aussie grandma has given her sick grandson the ultimate gift by donating a kidney.
Little Kaije Archer, who turns three in April and who lives in Launceston, was born with a rare but serious genetic condition called congenital nephrotic syndrome.
It caused Kaije’s kidneys to filter too much of the protein albumin, which lead to swelling and a weakened immune system.
Parents Gregory Archer, 23, and Katelyn Boon, 29, were struggling to cope with their son's illness when Boon's mother Robyn Butterworth decided to donate her own kidney to her grandson.
The transplant was successfully carried out in Melbourne's Royal Children's Hospital last week and thankfully, both nana and grandson are now doing well, according to The Examiner.
In fact, Kaije is now free of the condition.
