Fundraising has ended.
My name is Lindsey and I am a 6yr old kindergartener. I was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome one day when I was 2 1/2 and on my way to a baseball game. No one knows what causes this kidney malfunction that happens "out of no where" and there is no cure.
I have been in the hospital 20 times, one time was for 10 weeks. I take 14 medications per day. They hurt my bones and I have not grown since I was 3 yrs. old. I am now home-schooled because my immune system is so low from the medicines.
Even through all this, I am a happy and funny kid who is surrounded by many people who love me!
Please help to make my future brighter by contributing to help find a cure!
Thank you so much!, Love, Lindsey
