DAWSONVILLE, Ga. -

By: Nathalie Pozo, All News 106.7

A Dawsonville family needs the community's help in finding a kidney match for their two and half year old little boy. Mason Hyde was only a few hours old when doctors realized he had kidney and heart failure. By the time he was six months old he had undergone open heart surgery and had been placed on life support twice.

Doctors did not think he would make it, but his parents Bobby and Randi Hyde knew he was a fighter. Mason is now in need of a kidney transplant. He is connected to a Dialysis machine for 10 hours every night, but his parents say it is only a matter of time before Dialysis stops working. They have setup this Facebook page, "Prayers for Lil' Mason" hoping someone, somewhere is a match.
