He was just 2 years old when our little boy started having symptoms of Nephrotic syndrome, which at the time had no idea that our little boy was going to be diagnosed with. The doctors started a very strong steroid treatment and other medications, but our baby was not responding. We decided at that point to leave everything behind and move to Houston TX to find better treatment for our baby Miguel, because in our native country their are no kidney specialist that could treat our baby boy. We were referred to Texas Children's Hospital where we have been since January of this year were a biopsy was done, he was diagnosed with Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and the correct treatment was given to Miguel. Our baby Miguel has responded very well to the medications and does not need to be hospitalized at the moment. The problem is since we are not from the United States my baby boy can not apply for Medicaid or any other insurance coverage. The doctors say, they can not keep seeing my baby due to the cost of the medication which is $2,000 plus his other pressure medication. We can not afford this at this time, my husband has a part time job and is desperately searching for another job. We are asking for donations just to cover his costly medication we do not want Miguel to have a relapse again. We are desperately asking for any donations anyone can help us with. If anyone knows of an organization that is willing to help please let us know. Thank you, and may God Bless you all.
