Mar 13 - New Jersey teen gets 17 college acceptance letters, overcomes homelessness

A determined New Jersey teenager just overcame the odds to be the first in his family to go to college — in an epic way. Despite dealing with homelessness throughout his life, 17-year-old Dylan Chid*ck now has his choice of colleges to pick from after receiving 17 acceptance letters, CBS New York reported.
After moving from Trinidad at 7 years old and becoming a citizen, Chid*ck and his family went through countless heartaches. His younger twin brothers are living with serious heart conditions and his family has been in and out of homelessness.
"My family went through a lot and there has been a lot of people saying, 'you can't do that,' or 'you're not going to achieve this,' and me — getting these acceptances — kind of verifies what I have been saying. I can do it and I will do it," Chid*ck said.

The Jersey City student set his goals high and met them. He became the senior class president at Henry Snyder High School and got inducted into the honor society. Now, he is looking to become the first in his family to attend college.
"The dream I want to achieve, I have to have a lot of determination," he said.

It was his single mother's courage to ask for help from the non-profit group Women Rising that Chid*ck said makes him want to do better.
"It has been hard financially, we have been homeless," the teen's mother, Khadine Phillip, said.
"Making herself vulnerable and putting herself out there, that made me determined to never let us get back in that situation again," Chid*ck added.

"She is a great example in doing everything necessary to help her children," said Roseann Mazzeo, executive director for Women Rising.
Among many things, the center has put them up in permanent supportive housing, giving Chid*ck a safe place to study and wait on his last acceptance letter.
"The College of New Jersey. I haven't heard back yet, but that is my top school right now," he said. Given his financial situation, the costs for all the college applications were waived.
Chid*ck hopes 18 will be his lucky number and bring him 18 choices for a bright future.
When he figures out where he wants to go, Chid*ck said he wants to study political science.

Not as good as Iíd hope not totally bad just not 100%

Everything was pointing towards everything being good but the blood test say creatinine levels are rising

They just had me do a dialysis treatment to clean everything out and scheduled a biopsy tomorrow morning to see whatís going on inside

The team of doctors seem component and have hope things will still work

Yeah the kidney is in and somewhat working doctor says they want to scan to see if they can reposition or adjust it to work better

When they transplant new kidneys they put the kidney in you abdominal but our kidneys normally go in the middle of our back and they leave the old ones in so i currently have 3

Atleast one of My old kidneys never stopped functioning it just couldnít support my whole body anymore

They determined the original failure cause was some rare disease called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis or FSGS for short

Iím feeling good, the transport people just came to get me to take me to the biopsy procedure to see whatís going on with the new kidney

Itís working just not at 100% as expected and theyíre going to look scan and test to see if anything different can be done to make it work at 100%

Iím in good spirits
