Ellis: 4 Year Old in Kidney Failure

Amazing little Ellis with her young, loving spirit needs your help.

Ellis went to the hospital in the beginning of September due to extreme dehydration from campylobacter bacterial infection.  About a week after being released from the hospital for her bacterial infection she had to be rushed to Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, NC. 

Ellis' family soon found out that she had developed complications from a bacterial gastro-intestinal infection (Campylobacter jejuni) and at the age of 4 her kidneys were failing her. Over the last several weeks her doctors have been trying to jumpstart her kidneys through dialysis, removing toxins and excess fluid from her body.

Ellis' parents, Amy and Stephen, have constantly been by her side. Missing work along with the rising Medical expenses have put Amy and Stephen is a stressful situation. The money we raise here is to help Ellis and her parents in their ongoing struggles.

Ellie’s entire family needs your help getting through this. All we want is to see Ellis' happy and healthy again.
