Sweet Will needs a new kidney

33075762_1537302977185030_r.jpegWill is 12, will be 13 on December 13th.  He was diagnosed in January 2018 with Nephronophthisis, a genetic disorder that causes CKD. At diagnosis he was at 9% residual kidney function. Kidney transplant is the best therapy for his condition. Transplants last anywhere from 5-12 years, so he faces 3-5 transplants over his lifetime. Our initial out of pocket cost for transplant will be $15,000. His anti rejection medicines after transplant will be $8,000-$17,000 a year, depending on which medicines work best for him and how much of them he needs to stay stable.

We are blessed to be almost current on his existing medical bills.  We are setting up this fundraiser not only to alleviate the stress of the transplant for ourselves, but to also support Will’s kidney donor, in the event Jenn is not his match.

A huge thank you in advance to everyone who donates.  We are in awe of the generosity we have already experienced.  

Xoxo, Dave, Jenn, Ben and Will
