Cojo Receives Second Kidney


Steven Cojocaru received a second kidney transplant - this one donated by his mother - after the first one in January had to be removed due to infection.

Cojocaru, a correspondent for the syndicated TV shows "Entertainment Tonight" and "The Insider," had the transplant Tuesday and was resting comfortably, according to a joint statement released by the television shows.

"I'm immensely grateful for the precious gift my mother has given me," said the 40-something fashion commentator. "Thank you to all for your prayers and good wishes - it gave me the strength to persevere and warmed my heart."

Cojocaru suffers from polycystic kidney disease, a hereditary disorder that causes the growth of cysts on the kidney. He received a kidney from a friend in January, but it was removed in June after it became infected with a virus that can afflict transplant recipients and lead to eventual loss of the organ.

"Both operations went smoothly and the doctors are very pleased with their progress," said Janet Annino, co-executive producer of "Entertainment Tonight" and "The Insider." "We are thankful they're both doing well and we look forward to seeing Cojo back on the red carpet soon."

You Said

I'm not discounting his mother's "gift" but I can't help but wonder what took her so long to offer it?

Will the kidney go gay immediately, or will it take time for it to "fag up?"

Just wondering...!

Congratulations to 'Cojo' for being gifted with several more years in order to continue his hunt for the AIDS virus! Also, when will his next album with the Foo Fighters come out?

I am so proud of cojo's mother. I look at ET, and the insider every time I get the chance. I heard cojo say he is on prednizone, I am on this medicine as well. I wish him the very best in recovery. Hope cojo can email me if possible. I will continue to pray for him. Cynthia of nc
