FedEx Team Member’s Daughter Meets Bryce Harper and Appears on ESPN

Aug 15, 2016

Ed King, a worldwide sales account manager with FedEx, remembers the day his 16-year-old daughter was admitted to the children’s hospital for a kidney transplant.

“The nurses in the heart and kidney unit couldn’t believe they didn’t know her,” Ed said. “Usually someone with her condition is in and out of the hospital, but she never was. She was a miracle baby.”

Kaylan King was born with only one functioning kidney. Doctors noticed that her left kidney had shifted to the right side and developed multiple cysts. To make matters worse, they had trouble locating Kaylan’s other kidney, which was hidden behind the cysts. She was rushed to the children’s hospital in downtown Washington, D.C. for more tests.

In total, 48 students from eight Asia-Pacific markets (Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam) took part in this year’s contest.

Invasive water chestnut plants are causing significant damage to rivers throughout the northeastern United States.

The non-native aquatic plants negatively impact river life by depleting oxygen levels, choking out other plants, and forming dense mats which block sunlight.

The Mystic River Watershed Association protects and restores the Mystic River in Massachusetts, and recently welcomed a group of FedEx Cares volunteers in Boston to work from canoes and kayaks.
