Nick Bacino is raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with his kidney transplant and other health issues. He was diagnosed with kidney failure at the age of 5 and received a new kidney from his mom in December of 2003. He lives in Flower Mound, TX and is being treated at Children’s Memorial Hospital, Dallas.
We celebrated his 10 year kidney transplant anniversary in December 2013. Unfortunately Nick’s kidney started to fail after that and he had to go on hemodialysis.

Nick had a small bout of rejection that looks like is reversing now. There is a balance between keeping his immune system suppressed enough not to cause rejection and not suppressed enough for his body to fight off the BK Virus. The last change in medicine didn’t work – his body rejected the kidney rather than fight off the BK virus.

Nick is doing great! It is 2 months post transplant and things couldn’t be better. He completed his first college class with an A and is looking forward to fall semester. He will be able to go away to school next fall.
