On Monday, August 26th, 2018, Travis Cossey had just completed a twelve-hour shift with his junior officer in training. He had started to feel bad the previous day but due to his dedication to his responsibilities, he just pushed forward. Travis drove from the Norfolk Police Department’s first precinct to a local hospital near his home. Soon after being examined by the doctors, he was admitted into the hospital for stage 4 kidney failure. After further testing, doctors were able to diagnose Travis with IgA Nephropathy.
IgA nephropathy (Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy), also known as Berger’s disease, is a kidney disease that occurs when IgA deposits build up in the kidneys, causing inflammation that damages kidney tissues. IgA is an antibody—a protein made by the immune system to protect the body from foreign substances such as bacteria or viruses.
