Carters kidney surgery

My name is Carter Bliss, I am two years old. I like playing trucks and Legos with my older brother Connor, and I LOVE acting goofy to make my little sister Madeline laugh!! I am always the first one to hug my dad 10 times when he comes home. Mom says hugs from me will make you melt. but don't be fooled, I am a BIG trouble maker!

When I was born, the doctors said I had Hydronephrosis to my left kidney. When I was two months old, I got sick and my parents took me to the hospital. After almost a day there they said I became septic and told my mom and dad it was up to me now, so I fought, and fought hard!

I have to go to the doctor a lot, and get a bunch of tests done. It can really be hard on me at times. I have many great days and some bad but I am a very happy boy!

My doctor has been monitoring my kidney for the past two years now. Originally they thought a stent would take care of my problem. I had a Cystoscopy in June and the valve to my kidney needs to be completely reconstructed so I can keep it and stay healthy. My surgery is July 31st. My parents have insurance for me but they pay $1,463 a month to keep us healthy and a reasonable deductible.

My insurance is July through June, so my deductible of $5,000 started over. The hospital wants my deductible upfront so to prevent permanent kidney damage and because I will also have to go back in 4 weeks for an additional surgery

This has been financially difficult for my parents. They have not been able to recover financially from when I got sick mainly due to the high insurance costs and kidney specialist visits. Anything you can do to help will be greatly appreciated. Please share my story with others

Thank you,
The Bliss Family
