My Red Socks Run for Kidney Health.

This October, I’m going to Red Socks Run like a life depends on it.

By running, walking or riding 60km I want to raise awareness of the 60hrs that kidney disease patients need to spend on dialysis each month.

Please donate to my page to raise funds for research into life-saving treatments, and provide support to the families of the 63 Australians that lose their life each day to kidney related diseases.

YOU can make a difference – Join me and help create a future where kidney health is a priority for all Australians.

About us

Wednesday 21st Sep
Our eldest son Lachlan was diagnosed with bilateral renal dysplasia at 4wks old, from there he has endured many tests, twice weekly, to weekly, to monthly to 3 monthly to 6mthly and overcome multiple UTI's which have caused much scarring on his already underdeveloped kidneys. We are super lucky that what the doctor's predicted for him did not occur and his growth has not been stunted at all as he towers over both his dad and I. As he reached puberty a further strain has been placed on his kidneys and he is now classed as having early stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease, unfortunately for him it is not just one but both kidneys that are affected. He takes medication in the hope to slow down the progression of the disease and was flagged to participate in a trial earlier this year but unfortunately his levels were not great and we had to forgo his place but we are optimistic that everything we are doing now will preserve what kidney function he has. Which leads us to this fundraiser, although he has not needed a transplant or dialysis yet.. it will be in his future. Thank you to everyone who has already donated, it truly means so much to both Rhys and I and our family.

That’s a lot for a young man to have endured already, not to mention you guys! Glad that he’s reached milestones the Dr’s weren’t sure of, may he continue to smash through all those challenges.
