He was born with only one kidney, a fact that the Calhoun family only discovered a little over three years ago in November of 2009.
During wrestling practice one day, Graham noticed blood in his urine. When he went to the hospital to get checked out, the doctor gave him his life-changing diagnosis.

No foul play is suspected. A note with contact information was found in the woman's car.
