The purpose and creation of this site was to give us, as Tyler's parent's a way to make a difference by creating a platform for increased public awareness and a way to raise essential funds for our sons kidney syndrome, called Nephrotic Syndrome.
Specifically Tyler's kidneys filtering system malfunctions, as a result protein leaks into his urine, which causes fluid to accumulate in his body and his eyes, stomach and legs swell up. Prolonged leakage can cause kidney failure.
We are dedicated and focused in our goal to assist the Nephcure Foundation (www.nephcure.org) in finding the cause and the cure for Nephrotic Syndrome (which is what Tyler has), and FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis).
Be advised that the title of this site is somewhat deceiving, as it is not just Tyler who needs to be healed; there are many who suffer from kidney ailments. Thus, we ask you to consider the title expansive, as it is our mission to bring relief to a world of brave souls who battle these challenges daily.
