My Son's Dental Fundraiser - ED

My son Pedro Alexis Rendon, was born in 1996 with a rare genetic disorder called Ectodermal Dysplasia. Only 7,000 people in the world have been diagnosed with this rare, unsupported disorder.

While ED affects the hair, nails, eyes, and skin, the most challenging and heartwrenching effect is Alex's deformed teeth and his inability to sweat. However, despite this disorder, Alex has overcome many obstacles and is a thriving young man with his whole life ahead of him. Alex has achieved a black belt in Taekwondo despite his physical limitations, volunteered for youth programs to fight against teen abuse, bullying, and spirituality (using his own life as testimony), and is in his 3rd year studying at UC Riverside majoring in Psychology, in hopes of helping others.

The reason why we are reaching out to YOU is because he needs miracle dental work, as you can see in the picture. Alex was born with very little teeth, most which are pointed and deformed. After doing great research, we've come to the conclusion that he will be needing implants. Unfortunately, insurance does not cover any of it, even though it is due to his health disorder. If you find it in your heart to contribute to this fund we would greatly appreciate it.

His total treatment is estimated at $33k, we've saved a lifetime for this but fall very short.  Thanks for your time.
