This is Sean Arnold, he's 13 years old, about to start eighth grade, and like any typical boy loves football, music, and WWE wrestling.
He was diagnosed at 3 years old with nephrotic syndrome; A kidney disorder that causes the body to excrete too much protein in the urine. He has been in and out of the hospital most of his life. He was in remission for 2 years until recently things began to get much worse. Over the past year he has undergone chemo treatments, hemodialysis and spent weeks in the hospital. Sean is now currently having peritoneal dialysis at home regularly.
Sean is currently on the transplant list for a new kidney at Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte.
I'm starting this fund because Sean's dad Hollis Arnold has worked at Greenville memorial for many years. He is a familiar face to most from his days in transport or now with the therapy department. What most people don't know, is that Hollis works 6 days a week, every week and when Sean's in the hospital stays with him at night and still works a full eight hour day.
When Sean has a doctors appointment Hollis has to take time off of work, when they have to travel to Charlotte it takes two days for appointments and travel, when it does come time for his transplant Sean will be in the hospital for at least a month.
Hollis helps so many people on a daily basis and has sacrificed so much in caring for his son the least we can do is help you out as much as we can
