Meet Carter

Carter is three years old. He has a serious form of FSGS / Nephrotic Syndrome. In early 2020, Carter was hospitalized with RSV, a common childhood illness, sending Carter into complete renal failure. In the last 2 months, Carter has had surgery to insert a port, another kidney biopsy, and been added to the transplant list.

 

Carter's mom now drives him to dialysis 3 time a week, 2 hours each way, and is actively looking for a kidney for her young warrior! 0 or 0+ blood type. We are rooting for you Carter!

 

Carter is The Nephrotic Syndrome Foundation's first Little Angel and recipient of a special box curated by MeToYou.

"We absolutely loved it! NSF - you guys are amazing & I love the support. It helps so much having people there to support us." - Carter's Mom

Meet Allison

Allison is 7 years old (almost 8). Diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome at 2, she has been on this journey for six years. She has gone through 7 procedures and treatments in search of remission.

 

Currently Allison is going through LDL Apheresis, an IV / dialysis like treatment where blood is removed, spun to extract a particular protein, and returned to Allison’s body. It is administered through a port for hours at a time over nine weeks. 12 treatments in all, all in the hospital, with high doses of prednisone at the same time. So needless to say, Alison is a true warrior.

The Nephrotic Syndrome Foundation is a non-profit organization supporting those diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome, their families and the ongoing search for a cure.
