Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. On Friday, May 4th 2018 Christine will be given the gift of love and life from her brother, Nick. Some may be asking how this came about so for those who don’t know, Christine was born with Vater Syndrome. It affects 1 in 10,000-40,000 children. Christine was born with one kidney and it functioned somewhere within 60% at birth. We are overjoyed to see her be given a better quality of life through Nick’s selfless and courageous decision to donate his kidney. Please keep them in your prayers and follow them as they journey through this gift of a lifetime.
