Clifton Park girl, 10, leaving hospital after lifesaving kidney transplant

The 10-year-old Clifton Park girl who just received a life-saving kidney transplant is now leaving the hospital.

Maya Charles Rivera’s family posted the exciting news on social media.

NewsChannel 13 has been bringing you her story since September, as the family held out for a life-saving donor. We told you about her surgery earlier this month.

A close family friend stepped forward and ended up being a match. That person wants to remain anonymous.
