A new kidney for Genesis

On that visit her doctor explained to me that she was in kidney failure (ESRD/CKD)  and that she would have to be admitted to a hospital right away. 
After being in the hospital for a week, the doctors decided Genesis was well enough to go home and that she would have to continue hemo dialysis at a pediatric dialysis center. A month later of hemo dialysis, the nephrologist decided that my daughter and I were ready to start dialysis at home (PD Dialysis). 

PD Dialysis is something we do every single night along with medications, injections, and a special diet. Not every single day is a good one, but somehow Genesis manages to have the same spunky attitude and sense of humor despite her condition. Although this has been a tough and heartbreaking situation for my family, friends, and especially my little girl. We all continue to stay strong and hopeful. 
Thankfully we are now active on the transplant (UNOS) list. Any day now we can get the call to go to the Lucille Stanford children’s hospital in Northern California for her transplant procedure. Something Genesis is so excited about because she misses eating chocolate, but especially cheese. Once she receives a new kidney, we’ll be in the hospital for about one to three months and maybe even longer. Since our time in the hospital can’t be precise we are asking for help to cover expenses as her dad and I will be taking time off from work to focus on our daughters health. 

All donations will be used for medical expenses that our insurance will not cover as well as travel expenses. Your kind generosity allows my family and I to be there for my daughter. 

I would like to thank every single person in advance for all the prayers, donations and especially for sharing my campaign. 
  God bless
