In the early days of her life, Ferris was diagnosed with Mainzer-Saldino syndrome, a rare disease that, among other things, causes kidney failure. As a result, she has been on dialysis for almost three years now. Ferris goes back to Children’s hospital in January to switch her dialysis to hemodialysis. They will be there for a minimum three months but could realistically be there until post transplant and recovery time.
The financial stress will be huge. Rent in Vancouver for a short term furnished home for six will be about $3000 a month. Mom, Lindsey, won’t be working. Dad, Pat, will have to commute back and forth to Vancouver/Kamloops while he continues his 2nd year nursing courses. The big sisters will be homeschooled in Vancouver.
Please, find it in your heart to make a donation. This family has to be down there and with their regular house bills back home, renting a place in Vancouver, Christmas, and travel expenses... any amount helps!
Thank you for your support.
