NEW Hope for Conor Bracelets – Conor van Baalen – Focal Segmental Glomerular Sclerosis
Conor van Baalen is 5 years old. He started getting sick when he was 22 months old, and at 24 months a kidney biopsy was done which showed that he had Focal Segmental Glomerular Sclerosis (FSGS).
FSGS is a rare kidney disease, which is not easy to treat, and each patient reacts differently to the treatments. FSGS is not a single disease, but a pattern of kidney damage and one of the most common causes of nephrotic syndrome, especially in children and adolescents.
His Nephrologist tried several different treatments and by the end of 2017, they confirmed Conor has an FSGS type that is Steroid Resistant. The only way forward is a kidney transplant. The kidney transplant is expensive, but the donor account also needs to be taken care of, together with the medicine and post operation care.
Please help us to raise funds for Conor and his ongoing medical expenses by ordering your Hope for Conor Bracelets at only R30 each. Details below.
