Hi,

This is my great nephew Andrew Warhaftig (in the center in orange shirt above). Supporting NephCure is very dear to us, and we appreciate all the support we can get. Andrew is now 15 years old and has a kidney disease called Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) since he was 4. He has spent over half his life on dialysis. His kidneys completely failed when he was 6 years old and he is now living on his second transplanted kidney. His life is difficult in so many ways because of this horrible disease. We don’t know how long this transplanted kidney will last before FSGS destroys it again. He has undergone countless medical treatments, more than any child his age should have to endure and spent months at a time at Children’s Hospital in Boston. NephCure is the only organization solely committed to finding a cure for FSGS. Researchers around the globe are conducting research every day and we need your continued support to push forward and find a cure.

Over 90% of all donations go directly to funding research grants. If you typically contribute to charities each year, we would ask again that you please consider making this one of them. NephCure is not as well known or publicized as some of the larger charitable organizations, making your support even more important in funding critical research and helping to raise awareness of FSGS. Together we can make a difference!

Thank you,
Susie and Howie
