Our friend Gabriel wants to help his kidney kids in his area get a Silly Kidney Pillow of their own. He is treated at 2 children's hospitals in St. Louis and wants the kids there to have a kidney pillow like the one he received during his recent stay in the hospital.
Help Gabriel bring a smile to kidney kids like himself by sponsoring a Silly Kidney Pillow Kit to be sent to a children's hospital in St. Louis in his honor.
Gabriel's mom, Tiffany, shares, "Gabriel is undoubtedly the shiniest star in the room. He's vibrant, kind, and energetic- all qualities he had to fight for. At his 20 week ultrasound, our doctor noticed that his bladder wasn't draining, which caused all of the urine he was producing to reflux into his kidneys rendering them non-functional.
We were told that there was not a very good chance that he would survive the pregnancy much less childbirth, but we held on to our peace that Gabriel would not only survive, but THRIVE. He was born screaming and immediately placed on hemodialysis. He continued with that schedule for four days a week until he was transplanted at almost 2 years old.
During his last hospital admission we were gifted a Silly Kidneys pillow and it brightened his day so much that it inspired me to help others get their pillow. I would like to donate to both of the children's hospitals that take care of Gabriel, Cardinal Glennon & St. Louis Children's Hospital. Can you help Gabriel & Co make that happen?"
Sponsor a Silly Kidney Pillow Kit in Gabriel's honor, today!
Each kit includes a empty Silly Kidney pillow and a bag of stuffing. Or, for a kiddo who doesn't have the motor skills or energy to stuff their own pillow, they will get a pillow that is already made. Whether they receive a pillow that is made for them, or they make it on their own, each child will get to decorate their pillow with a smiley face and fabric paint.
