Donors are moving quickly to replace items stolen from an ailing Ohio teenager while he was out attending a fundraiser in his honor.

A student group is purchasing another TV for 16-year-old Sam McCready, whose new widescreen television was taken during Saturday night's break-in at his family's home in Bellville. A Best Buy store plans to replace the stolen Sony PlayStation console.

Additionally, a security firm and a locksmith are offering their services to the family.

Sam lost both kidneys to Goodpasture's syndrome, a rare autoimmune disease, and travels 60 miles to Akron three times a week for dialysis.

The family has struggled with medical expenses as the boy has gone through repeated hospitalizations and chemotherapy treatments. He is hoping to eventually be well enough for a kidney transplant.

Gifts and the proceeds from Saturday's fundraiser were to be presented to the family Thursday evening.
