Hospital Denies 14-Year-Old Girl Lifesaving Surgery Over COVID Vaccine

A hospital in Durham, North Carolina, refused to grant a kidney transplant to a 14-year-old girl because she hasn’t received the COVID-19 vaccine.

Lee and Chrissy Hicks say that doctors at Duke University Hospital have refused to proceed with the kidney transplant that their adoptive daughter, Yulia, needs. The pair shared their story during an interview with the BlazeTV podcast “Relatable” this week.

“Chrissy and Lee are Christians. They’re an Army family. They adopted Yulia and her brother from Ukraine early last year and love her as their own flesh and blood. And they are begging for help for their daughter,” said host Allie Beth Stuckey. “Yulia … has a genetic kidney disorder. She needs surgery, and the hospital is saying she cannot get this surgery without getting the COVID vaccine.”

“The hospital actually played semantics with us,” Lee said. “When we probed them on the requirement to have the vaccine shot, they said it’s not a requirement. It’s actually a recommendation. But if you don’t follow their ‘recommendation,’ then [Yulia] won’t get the kidney transplant. So that makes it a requirement.”

“[Doctors] were almost draconian about the whole thing … basically, what they said [was] ‘if you’re not going to follow our recommendation, then you’re not gonna get a kidney,'” Lee said.

When the Hickses adopted Yulia in 2021, they knew she suffered from a rare genetic kidney condition that would eventually require surgery.

“We took [Yulia] to Duke immediately because we didn’t know how long it had been since she had been seen,” Chrissy said. “She needed to go on dialysis basically immediately. Her kidneys, I think, were at 13% function or something when we got her.”

“This child … her and her brother have been through so much lately, in the last few years. I mean, a family adopted them in 2018, and that didn’t work out. After about a year, they sent the boy back to Ukraine to just go away. And then they sent [Yulia] to Arizona to another family to kind of go away. And then, that family kept her for about four months and sent her back, after they got her brother back, after about a month,” Lee said.

“So then we got a phone call … from someone who knew we were close to Raleigh, and they said, ‘Hey, can you go pick these two up because they’re going to be arriving in about three hours and no one’s going to come to get them except for the police.’ So, sure, I said absolutely, we’ll go get them. And so we did,” he said. “We were just going to keep them for the weekend to try to figure out what was going to happen. We rearranged our lives a little bit to kind of help rectify the situation that [the children] were in. Then we, of course, adopted them without hesitation, really, because we just said, ‘Hey, this is what God wants us to do.’ And now we’re at this point of getting a kidney because she needs it, and these doctors are saying no because you won’t get this vaccine, which has been known to hurt children.”

    I’d say that is attempted murder instead of do no harm.

  2. American Patriot In God We Trust says:

    Doctors took an oath to SAV LIVES, but it appears they LIED.
    All these Doctors involved, all know that the Covid 19 Vaccine, should have never been given to Children, because the VACCINES have not been tested and have caused problems to young male boys and even have ended up causing deaths. Even in London, they stopped giving the vaccine to young children and teenages.
    Any Doctor who refuses to SAVE LIVES, SHOULD ALL BE FIRED AND HAVE THEIR LICENCE TAKEN AWAY, AND NEVER BE ABLE TO PRACTICE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.
    ALMIGHTY GOD, PLEASE SAVE YOUR CHILD AND LET A GOOD DOCTOR GIVE HER THE NECESSARY LIFE SAVING SURGERY.

      This is a disgrace and a testament to the Dem/Communists running our country….Np longer the land of the free or the home of the brave. Duke University needs to be stripped of all Federal funding and shut down. Under Biden and his administration, it is all about population control and they will do everything in their power to get rid of anyone that opposes them. They love their criminals and illegals because they can control them. Christians and law-abiding citizens are their enemies.

      1. Emmanuel Olivier says:

        Amen, that’s the unfortunate truth.

    2. Tom T says:

      If the so called doctors do not live up to the
      oath they took then ship all of them who
      refuse to uphold the oath then ship them
      some where they are they only ones there
      and do not allow anyone to help them when
      they need help to save their lives..

    3. VON says:

      KNOWLEDGE THAT A SHOT CAN SAVE A LIFE SHOULD BE WHAT EVERYONE WANTS, INSTEAD OF JUST WHINING AND STATING “THAT NO ONE IS GOING TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO.”…….TOO BAD THAT SO MANY ARE SO UNEDUCATED & EGOTISTICAL THEY NEVER DO WHAT IS BEST FOR THEIR CHILDREN OR THEMSELVES.

  3. RicHard G Wrona says:

    I Pray to God I get to witness their military trbunals and watch them Hang for their part in this War!

  4. Steve says:

    List these Dr. names and addresses. Protest the hospital, organize a huge protest

  5. Bret says:

    These people are pos We are getting to the point where these people need to be beaten

  6. Helen E Sanders says:

    That is attempted murder. What is wrong with that hospital. They, the hospital needs to be sued for a couple of million dollars. Let them figure out how they are going to pay that. That is totally hateful. They know that the Covid vax does not work. Those so called jabs are deadly.

  7. RK Ray says:

    Dear Lee & Chrissy — Go to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr’s Children’s Health Defense organization (childrenshealthdefense.org). Start with the LEGAL section, and COMMUNITY, where you can get on the Mary + Polly show. RFK Jr’s CHD leads the anti-Covid vax fight with the latest news, information, and LAWSUITS. They’ve been quite effective. Good luck & Godspeed!

  8. JoAnn Leichliter says:

    This, among other things, is why the medical profession is no longer respected or trusted.

  9. There should be a lawsuit brought against them.

  10. Helen E Sanders says:

    Of all places, hospitals are the ones that should know that those so-called Covid jabs are not real vaccines and that they are extremely dangerous. If that so called hospital won’t do the surgery to save the life of that 14 year old – SUE THAT HOSPITAL.
