Madyson was diagnosed with lupus and late stage 3 kidney failure on June 10, 2020. We took her to a routine well check and we were sent out to the er due to 3 plus protein in her urine. We were transferred from Tallahassee to Gainesville to be admitted to Shands children hospital. We spent 10 days while she underwent several test to figure out why she was so sick. Madyson is on 2 different types of chemotherapy and several different medications. We go to Shands every 2 weeks for treatment. This is Maddys story.
