NYC girl desperately needs a new kidney; can you help?

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

There's no question that 5-year-old Kinsey Saleh is spunky. Yep, this Queens girl is sassy and smart. While most girls Kinsey's age beg mom for a new doll, Kinsey's plea is one no child should ever have to say: "Give me a new kidney."

Kinsey is in end-stage kidney failure. It can't get any worse. For four months now, three times a week, three hours each day, she receives dialysis just to stay alive.

Kinsey's mom, Nadine Morsi, was a perfect match but in a cruel twist. She wanted to donate but was rejected.

Renal failure in children is rare, only 15 in 1 million. Kinsey is now on a waiting list along with 80 other children in the New York region.

Dr. Corrine Benchimol is Kinsey's doctor at Mt. Sinai Kravis Children's Hospital. The doctor says the sooner Kinsey gets a new kidney the better.

It's a race against time for Kinsey. But anyone who knows Kinsey, knows she's ready to live a long, happy and healthy life with someone's help.

    A Delta Air Lines flight from La Guardia Airport to West Palm Beach, Florida, was diverted to Jacksonville because of a dispute between passengers over a reclining seat. Delta reportedly says the flight was diverted Monday night when a woman got into an argument with a passenger behind her when the woman was trying to recline her seat while the other passenger was trying to sleep on the tray table.

    New York City subway riders are getting back service on the G train between Brooklyn and Queens. The return of service comes as the Metropolitan Transportation Authority reopens a tunnel Tuesday that was heavily damaged by Superstorm Sandy. The Greenpoint tunnel has been closed for five weeks for repairs. Shuttle buses were provided between G stops in Queens and Brooklyn during that time.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
