Andi and Wilson's Story

Episode 2

At the young age of six, Wilson and his family were thrust into a world they knew nothing about. A diagnosis of Minimal Change Disease turned their “normal” into “navigating the unknown.” In this episode, Andi shares their story of understanding, courage, and connecting with others. Read More.

ANDI CALLAWAY

Founder & President

Andi and her husband Tucker founded The Nephrotic Syndrome Foundation in 2017 after their own son Wilson was diagnosed. Andi recognized a need in the community, and made it her mission to provide much needed direct support and encouragement for patients and families in this journey. With the help of NSF's supporters and Board, Andi and her team at NSF have created valuable programs benefitting patient families around the world. 

Andi's extensive career in finance, time in the non-profit world, and personal experience with NS all contribute to her ability to uniquely see what is needed by those in this journey. Ask Andi; however, and she will tell you it is the patient families in this journey who inspire her to make NSF a success. Andi lives with her husband Tucker, kids Wilson, Lila, and puppy Chief in Alamo, CA.

JEREMY BEDIG

Peer Team Lead & Nephrotic Syndrome Warrior

Diagnosed with fast acting variant FSGS at 14, Jeremy has experienced a number of treatments, double nephrectomy and dialysis. He received his first kidney transplant within two years of diagnosis. That kidney worked for almost six years before it failed, putting him back on dialysis. At 24 Jeremy received his second transplant.

 

Through all of this Jeremy never stopped following his passions. He played soccer all through high school and continues to play and coach teams. He also credits his amazing support system who nourished and energized him through his journey.

 

Now 27, he and his family have had time to reflect on their journey. In their most difficult moments where they had to make decisions with no clear right answer, they never felt they had an experienced community to support them. It is now his passion to provide that support and improve the lives of other families impacted by Nephrotic Syndrome. 

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
