This is the KiaLee Wilson Kidney Transplant Fund. Proceeds will help in medical costs and related expenses to take care of this little girl.

KiaLee is a 7 year old little girl who was diagnosed with Stage 5 Renal (Kidney) Disease on August 8th, 2011. When she was born, she was a month overdue, and had no amniotic fluid around her. She had 2 bowel movements in the womb, and inhaled the muconium, her umbilical was wrapped around her neck twice, and was cutting off her oxygen. She was completely green and sticky when she was born. She was immediately rushed to the NICU nursery, and had to be on oxygen for 3 days. She also had an ear tag that is just an extra piece of skin that they tied off. It fell, off on its own. Upon doing x-rays, they then discovered that she had 2 ribs just floating, they didn't attach while developing, and 4 vertebrae didn't fuse properly. Thankfully the ribs attached on their own, and 2 of the 4 vertebrae fixed on their own as well. The other 2 are what's called, Upper Thoracic Kyphosis secondary to a Vertebral Segmaentation Anomaly and Thoracic Hemivertebrae. There is a great likely hood that it too will have to be fixed at a later date with surgery. She has seen a Neurosurgeon in our home town every 6 months since the day she was born, and they never discovered the Spinal Cord Anomaly (Tethered Cord). On September 8th, 2011 the Neurosurgeon in Denver, Co. caught that, and then on November 15th she had her first surgery on her spine. On December 27th, 2011 she was placed on the transplant waiting list. Every week KiaLee has to go in and get her blood drawn to make sure things don't get to bad with her kidneys. So far we have been lucky enough to where they haven't had to place her on Dialysis, and have been able to control her kidney function with medicine and a very strict diet. We are very thankful for all the positives, whether big or small, and very optimistic for her to find a donor.
KiaLee is the only girl out of 4 kids. She has 2 older brothers and 1 baby brother. She is in 1st grade, and loves school. She is very energetic, inspiring, loving, helpful, spirited, and big hearted. She loves to help other people out. She also loves to do her beauty pageants. Anything that has to do with family, she enjoys. She is just so spirited. Her mother, Jamie stays home to take care of her and her 3 brothers. Since they are on call 24/7 waiting for her transplant, she can't really work, so her Daddy Nathan works full time as a Truck Driver. They are doing everything they can to take care of her and her needs, and they needs of her brothers, it just gets very expensive. With struggling to pay bills on a 1 income family, and medical expenses for all 4 kids, and being so far behind as it is, it gets to be next to impossible. We have been very thankful with the help that we have received thus far, and would like to thank, Gracie's Promise, Pineview School, K-Ted Radio Station 100.5, and the community of Casper, Wyoming. Thank you all, and May God Bless Everyone.
