Our Story

Matthew is a three-year-old little boy of Vijish & Milu, who suddenly became ill at 18 months old when his family learned that his kidneys were massively enlarged and malfunctioning. He needs a kidney transplant, which thankfully can be provided by his mother, but the expenses are extreme. Insurance has got a lot of exclusions and does not cover everything, including some of the medications that he needs for his transplant, post-transplant care, the expensive supplements to keep him going. These uncovered costs are expected to reach over $150,000.

Matthew’s condition has never stopped him from anything, other than being on a regimen, to his terrible 3's, and it is the hope and intention of all concerned that it never will.
