Our Paisley was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome in March 2016. Doctors took steps toward getting her better with steroids that they said helped a big majority of nephrotic syndrome cases. As the weeks went by the medicine did not work and only made Paisley swollen and extremely hungry, and with a low salt diet, that wasn't easy. After another trip to the hospital, they finAlly decided to do a biopsy. After her biopsy they then determined that Paisley has a nephrotic syndrome that doctors call, IGM Nephropathy. This means that the certain IGM anti-body is attacking her kidneys. They also told us another thing they found which was that the walls in her kidneys were thicker than usual. This is usually a sign that this is a genetic abnormality. This means she could have been born with this condition. The only way to find this out is to go ahead with genetic testing. Docotor told us this was necessary because if it is something she was born with, then no medicine will help and she will HAVE TO have a kidney transplant. Without this test we will not know. To make it all worse...our insurance covers NOTHING.... This test is exactly $8,230. We have many other medical bills to add on top of this. I'm just asking for a small donation to help us reach at least half of what we need. Anything...and I mean anything helps! It's scary not knowing if your baby will be okay. Her kidneys are continuing to fail....for now without the genetic test we will have to continue trial and error with many medicines that have horrible side effects. If you can not donate, please send any prayers or positive energy our way.
