This is a fundraiser to help the Wards with Aaliyah's medical expenses.

Aaliyah L. Ward is one of the most vivacious two year olds, I know.
In February of 2012 Ali was diagnosed with Distal Renal Tubular Acidosis (RTA) and Medullary "sponge" Kidney (MSK). With this condition she has started to develop Rickets and although most days are easy she does have some tough days. With all of this, her body is not growing and has now been diagnosed with a human growth hormone deficiency. So unfortunately her body is not holding on to the nutrients and calories she needs to grow. Aaliyah also has developed issues with not eating. We have been told that's common with RTA, and there is talk of a G-tube placement ( feeding tube). Ali has been placed on Potassium Citrate ( Polycitra K) for her RTA and it is also helping her Hypokalemia. The newest medication that has been added to the list is Nutropin . Nutropin is a synthetic growth hormone that will be given to Ali via injections (daily). The Lord has truly blessed our family, Aaliyah is not in complete renal failure as of now and does not have to do dialysis. Aaliyah, Unfortunately will continue to be tested frequently and she will be on the Polycitra for the rest of her life. My husband and I are trying very hard to give Ali a healthy normal lifestyle and we want her to know that God made her special for a reason.
Although we don't know what the total of all her medical expenses will be, we do know that her HGH medication is about $7,000 for one year ( after coverage kicks in). I thought I would at least try and ask for help to alleviate some of the stress that has been placed on our family. Any money donated will be placed in an account for Aaliyah and only used for medical expenses.
Our family could definitely use prayers and love sent our way. We appreciate any and all support.
