Help Little Joey fight vs kidney Disease

Hi,I’m Joey,Mr.Got Cut? In my desperation as a father,this is definitely the time in life to set my pride aside & ask for help. I always imagined a healthy happy future for my son Little Joey,he’s only 5 years old! He was Diagnosed with a rare auto immune Kidney disease called IGA Nephropathy/Berger’s disease. IGA Nephropathy occurs when IGA protein gets stuck in kidneys causing inflammation. In a nut shell, Little Joey’s immune system is attacking his kidneys and has been doing so for quite some time without signs until a few weeks ago. Unfortunately There is no cure for the disease, & Lil Joey will need a Kidney Transplant in the very near future. Lil  Joey’s Kidney disease has really taken a toll on him physically & mentally. He’s tired most of the time, but manages to play & Always with a smile. I'm praying everyday and do keep a hopeful and positive outlook for the future. Recently, Lil Joey had an extended stay at the St. Christopher’s hospital,being transferred from other hospital to receive special care for his condition. Lil Joey is fighting extra hard to improve his Kidney function. Unfortunately  there has been no improvement, instead they have continued to decline to the point where he’s  in beginning stage of Kidney Failure. Over the next several Weeks Lil Joey will be going for routine blood work and trips to see his Kidney Specialist from N.J to PA. Our family have a very long road ahead – This is just the beginning. I really need your help!  Im a commission based barber and as this journey progresses it will be difficult to work at the same pace I used to. Due to Covid 19 my business was forced to shut down. It’s been a huge impact financially,& Mentally. No income coming in,bills keep pilling up. I have had to make though decisions,wheater I pay a bill,or pay for his medications. In particular one of his chemotherapy  medication cellcept. Which it’s not covered by his insurance. As if we didn’t have enough,we Recently had smoke damage from a fire at the barbershop. Unfortunately that’s going to delay the opening,As I choose to pay for my sons medications instead of the property insurance. I was forced to make that sacrifice. As a father I feel impotent, & embarrassed. I still have faith, I know that “After every strom there's a rainbow,no matter how long it takes to show up". Please,If you can provide any donation amount $1-$5 Any amount donation to help with previous, current and future medical bills,(including transportation, co-pays, medication, dialysis, transplant procedure and post recovery) I will GREATLY APRECIATE! Thank you!
