Corrie is in Need of Your Support!

 In 2009 Corrie was diagnosed with a rare form of kidney disease called IgA Nephropathy (also known as Berger’s disease). This is a kidney disease that occurs when an antibody called immunoglobulin A (IgA) builds up in your kidneys. This resulted in his kidneys not being able to filter waste from his blood. Corrie put up a strong fight but in November of 2018 Corrie's kidney function quickly went from 35% functioning in 2017 down to 10% function which put Corrie at end-stage kidney failure and was hospitalized for a week Feb 28 through March 5, 2019, and at present Corrie is still on dialysis. What does this mean? It means that he now requires a kidney transplant
