QUESTIONS ANSWERED ABOUT NEPHROTIC SYNDROME

QUESTIONS ANSWERED ABOUT RELAPSES AND THE ONGOING BATTLE WITH NEPHROTIC SYNDROME: Aug. 2010


This is also the debut of The Skylar Ransom Show enjoy:



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.

Thank you for visiting our site. We respectfully request that you tell your family, your friends and all those whom you come across to take a moment, to stop by and to check us out.


We also encourage you to check out the link "Tyler Challenge" to see the amazing people and organizations that have gotten involved and see how you may get involved or encourage others to.
Together we can make a difference!

NEPHROTIC SYNDROME RELAPSE 2011

Tyler suffers a relapse and lets everyone know that it does not mean, "stop living." I actually encouraged him to stay home from school, and his words convinced me otherwise. He said," It looks bad, but I feel okay and I can see out of both of my eyes." Stay positive and keep the faith.
