Thank you for stopping by to visit. This site will be used to provide updates on Mariah during the rest of her medical journey, as well as, allow visitors to provide their support with positive thoughts of encouragement. It has been a long 2 years since Mariah found out she was going into kidney failure. She has remained strong and positive even when things were at their worst. She has suffered through her pain (emotional and physical) to live life as normal as possible as a teenager. She has had some of her most enduring years as a teenager taken from her but refuses to let her disease define her. She has never expected anyone to treat her any different than who she really is. Mariah can really use your positive thoughts and prayers as she finishes out this unexpected journey. You are welcome to visit any time to leave your thoughts of encouragement. I (Stacy, her mom) will continue to post medical updates through this site. We do not expect any further donations so please feel free of the obligation - we merely are looking for your positive thoughts.
