Welcome to My Personal Page
I was diagnosed with minimal change disease in February 2017. This was a huge surprise to myself and my new husband, Richard Matthews Jr. The sadness of having a kidney disease was overwhelming since my mother-in-law passed away weeks before my wedding with kidney and liver cancer. The look on my husbands face when the doctors at the Mayo clinic finally had an answer to the swelling(40lbs in 4 days) after 3 weeks with no answers. The lady on the phone said "its your kidneys you have to see a nephrologist immediately." I could feel my husband just deflate beside me. The financial burden that medical bills and missing work was a huge set back for two newlyweds, even with medical insurance, it was debilitating. If there is anything I can do to help someone in my situation I will. Please help me in supporting other people with their financial burden while dealing with kidney disease.
