My Son has lived all his life with kidney failure. Born March 3, 2016, he had it from utero, in the womb. We hope an angel will change his life someday soon by giving him the gift of life. Myself and his dad are not able to donate because of genetics. Maybe some angel out there will save my son's life. It's been a long journey for the past 18 months.
I don’t want to lose my son.
Kidney failure is a really tough thing to go through, especially when it is your baby and you feel so helpless as a parent. More people being able to donate will change the lives of a lot of patients. He is on the deceased donor wait list, but his Nephrologist advised us to see if we could get him a living donor because he is so young age.
Will you help save this little boy's life?

Patient information you may need for the form:
