UPDATE: Recent kidney transplant patient dies

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - WDRB News has a sad update to a recent story.

WDRB News followed the story of the Hatler Family.

The family was made up of husband and wife, Chris and Billie, and their son C.J.
 
Billie donated a kidney to her husband just before Halloween last year. 

C.J. turned the family's Okolona home into a haunted house as a way to raise money in order to help the family with medical expenses. 

Chris Hatler suffered recent complications from the transplant and passed away earlier this month.

"It's been tragic. A lot of people are trying to come together to comfort us.When you lose your best friend, someone you spent everyday with, it's hard to keep going," C.J. Hatler said. 

Loved ones organized the "Cruising for Hatler" car show that will happen Sunday at Jammerz Rollerdome in Clarksville. The event runs from noon until 5 p.m. 

All proceeds will benefit the family's unpaid funeral costs.
