You’ll be supporting kidney kids like Harry….
Harry was born five weeks premature with a large 1 kilo tumour in his abdomen. By the time he was born, it had already done massive damage to his kidneys. One wasn’t working at all. The other was only working at 50%.
Since then he’s endured several major surgeries, three months of chemotherapy, a kidney transplant from his dad, and he needs medication every day of his life.
These are huge pressures for a kidney kid to deal with at such a young age. Children living with kidney disease often suffer from feelings of isolation and low self-esteem. Your support means, children like Harry can connect with other kids facing the same challenges and be supported every step of their journey.
