Malorie Renz Surgey Fund

We recently learned that our sweet 6 month old Baby Girl Malorie Anne Renz needs Kidney Surgery. We, along with her doctors have had high hopes that her Kidney issues would resolve themselves, but after many months of many tests and waiting her Doctors have determined that 2 surgeries will be needed to resolve the issue and save her Kidney. The first Surgery will happen in only two weeks. Her doctors have determined that the second surgery can wait until she is at least 1 year old, but the first is needed immediately at the age of only 7 months. Her doctors are very hopeful that after the two surgeries her problems will be resolved and that she will need no further treatments and her Kidneys will function normal for the rest of her life. As her family we too are hopeful that the surgeries will resolve her issues and she will not need to spend any more time being poked and tested and just be able to enjoy being a kid. Malorie's mom works full time as a Dance and PE teacher at North Monterey County High School while her Dad has returned to school attending SJSU as a Civil Engineering student. Malorie also has an older Brother who is 2 years old (shown in the picture with her) who is as he says "sisters best friend". Living off of only one income while we try to improve our lives with Malorie's dad in school, the expense of two surgeries is daunting. We would like to focus on helping our baby girl instead of worrying about how we will pay for it. We are humbly asking our family and friends for help with this issue, whether it be prayers, words of encouragement or by helping to donate to this fund. Donations will be used to help pay for the surgeries as well as food and lodging for the family as we have to travel to UCSF in San Francisco for all doctors appointments and the surgeries. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
