Kayden and Karris.
Some of you may remember Kayden. On July 5th 2016, three days after Kayden's fifth birthday he was taken to the doctor by his mom Christine as he had not been feeling well. The doctor told her to take him to the hospital in Comox. It was there that Kayden was diagnosed with renal failure, known to most people as kidney failure and was immediately air lifted to children's hospital with his mom by his side.
Kayden is hooked to a dialysis machine every night at home and is on the list for a kidney transplant but is living life to the fullest as a spunky 6 year old now.
Josh, Kayden's father was going through extensive testing to see if he was a match so he could be a donor for his son. Sadly it was determined only a week ago Josh has his own medical issues, a clogged artery in his heart and is at risk for having a severe heart attack. Josh will not be able to be a donor for his son.
Now today another blow to Josh and Christine. Their youngest daughter Karris, just 3 years old had also not been feeling well. Recognizing the symptoms, Josh and Christine took Karris to the hospital. It was determined that Karris was also experiencing renal failure. Karris with mom by her side were immediately air lifted to children's hospital.
Karris has since been sedated and intubated and has undergone dialysis and is currently resting with her family close by her side.
This family needs our help. No family should have to endure what they have gone through. No family should have to watch their two little children go through what they are going through.
I started this GoFundMe campaign to help relieve the family of the financial burden this puts on them, so that they can stay at the bedside or their sick daughter. So they can focus all of their attention on getting Karris and Kayden well again. The funds raised will help them with the bills, transportation costs, parking at the hospital, and food and other living expenses while away from home and work.
Karris and Kayden are fighters and this family needs our support to help them through this tough time. Prayers and or a donation would be much appreciated. I know we can reach our goal.
