WACO, Texas (KWTX) A Central Texas man is receiving support from the community as he fights a rare form of kidney disease.
Kelby Thompson is in need of a kidney transplant. He's been living with a rare form of kidney disease since he was three.
During a benefit at Lakeside Tavern in Waco Saturday night, a raffle was held to raise money for surgery that he needs and awareness for the cause.
Thompson has undergone countless surgeries, dialysis and two failed transplants.
He requires type O blood products but he is hoping if he doesn't find a match for his transplant, someone else will.
