JP Needs Our Help
John Paul “JP” Ross was born on November 28, 1988. He was diagnosed at birth with Alports syndrome, a genetic condition characterized by kidney disease, hearing loss, and eye abnormalities. Almost all affected individuals have blood in their urine which indicates abnormal functioning of the kidneys. People with Alports syndrome experience progressive loss of kidney function which leads to end-stage renal failure, requiring dialysis or kidney transplantation.
