#17: Donating to find a cure for Jackson

"26 acts of kindness","26 acts", "random acts of kindness","#26acts, FSGS" As you may have read in #13 of my blog, my son, Ethan, has a good friend, Jackson, who was recently diagnosed with a serious kidney disease called FSGS , which stands for
Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis.  Jackson is only 6 years old and has a long road of treatments ahead of him.  His parents would do anything to find a cure for their only child.  Heather, Jackson's mom, posted on Facebook that if anyone wanted to help, she would ask for donations to The NephCure Foundation.  This foundation is working on a cure for this horrible disease.

I was happy to donate $20 to NephCure and help find a cure for Jackson.

If anyone would like more information on FSGS or Jackson's story, you can check out these links:
