A Boy and His Robot – by Deanne Fitzmaurice

San Francisco-based freelancer Deanne Fitzmaurice photographed a young boy in Texas with kidney disease whose robot goes to school for him for Sports Illustrated.
Lyndon Baty, 15, goes to school and church via a robot that has a camera and videoconferencing capacity. Born with kidney disease, his body is now rejecting the kidney he had transplanted when he was 7. With little or no immune system, it is too risky for him to be near people other than his direct family members. He lives in Knox City, Texas, with his parents and two brothers.
