Exodus Simmons, the five-year old son of late rapper DMX, is battling stage 4 kidney disease. Desiree Lindstrom, DMX's fiancee and the mother of the boy, made the news public while speaking with Raquel Harper during an appearance on the podcast "It's Tricky."
“Exodus is stable. He still has stage 3 kidney disease, and I continue to keep his potassium down," Desiree explained. "He goes to the doctor very often.”
Lindstrom also posted on Instagram about her son's health battle.
"Exodus is an amazing child!" she wrote. "Blessed to be his mother through this journey. March is the month that brings awareness to kidney disease. Take the time to learn about CKD. Knowledge is key. Thank you for the support @nationalkidneyfoundation and #columbiapresbyterianhospitalnyc. Prayers are much appreciated! #ForeverX"
