Zieks fight for life

Our son ziek is 5 years old and has been battling a rare form of kidney disease called fsgs since he was 16 months old.  Ziek  has been on dialysis for over 2 years  enduring 14 hours of peritoneal dialysis every day to sustain his life. At first ziek just needed a kidney. On may 9th i got a call after ziek had some tests done and was told his heart function was only at 16 % and we had to get him to the hospital. And we have been here since. All efforts so far have been unsuccessful in restoring any heart function.  Ziek is now fighting harder than he has ever had to and will need a heart and kidney transplant.  We are devastated and scared and we need help. Thomas (zieks dad) lost his job due to recent events and our family vehicle is no longer reliable. We will be displaced from our home for a long time and we just arent sure how we will find a way to keep us together and make ends meet. We dont want to lose everything but ziek is our focus and its important ziek is surrounded by family. The hard truth is we just dont know how much time ziek has left . we are ready to fight this fight but we need help . if you can donate please donate if you cant please share and pray for my baby and our family.
