‘I will die free’: Unvaccinated Burke County man denied kidney transplant by hospital
BURKE COUNTY, N.C. (WSOC) — A Burke County man’s decision not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine means he also won’t be getting a much-needed kidney transplant.
Chad Carswell, a double amputee who has undergone several major surgeries on his heart, now faces a different battle. Carswell told Channel 9′s Dave Faherty his kidney is only operating at about 4%.
Dialysis three times a week keeps him going, but the solution is temporary.
“Without (a kidney transplant) there’s no telling how much longer I’ll be here, I have to have a kidney to prolong my life,” he said.
