A New Haven second-grader awaiting a multiple-organ transplant is one step closer to putting the surgery behind him.
Max Dickerson, 8, son of Jeff and Emily Dickerson, received approval for the procedure Monday from Anthem Insurance and is on a waiting list to receive the organs. He needs a liver and kidneys and possibly a multivisceral transplant, which would include multiple digestive organs.
Max was born with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease, which causes fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys and can affect other organs.
