Drake Smith Kidney Fund
Andrea Smith CLEVELAND, OH
Drake Smith, a seventeen year old, high school Senoir at Beachwood High School in Beachwood Ohio and only child to cosmetologist Andrea Smith, was diagnosed two (2) years ago with 'Alports Syndrome', an acute, progressive kidney disease that creates inevitable kidney failure, sight loss and hearing modifications. However with the affects of the illness coupled with a three day per week dialysis regimen which began in August 2013, Drake and his mom are now enlisting your help for this extremely time sensitive matter. We would like to extend a unique oppurtunity to you in form of organ doantion and/or sponsorship! With your sponsorship it will aid us in bringing awareness to find a potential donor as well as raise awareness to this silent disease. Interested donors can be tested @ UH in Cle,OH by calling 216.983.5138. Donor matches are age specific (18-35) & matching blood type is 'B' ('O' may also be accepted). We thank you for your support, prayers and passing the word along, it means more to us than we can exspress!+ Read More
