You Can Help Make a Difference

My name is Shelby Rosengren and I am 28 years. Following a completely healthy, low-risk, pregnancy, my water broke at 36 and a half weeks and Owen Thomas made his debut into the world. I wish I could say all went well and we went straight home to celebrate our first Christmas together as a family of three. Sadly, that wasn’t the case. Owen was immediately taken away and transferred to a different hospital to undergo a cooling treatment to slow down some of the trauma done during labor and birth. He’s perfect now but my struggles have continued. After losing nearly 3L of blood, gaining 20 pounds, and spending two days at the original hospital I was transferred to the same hospital as Owen. On Christmas Eve, we found out I was in kidney failure.

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting our fundraising page!

Things are going well on the home front. Shelby is doing Peritoneal dialysis at home every night while she sleeps and it gives her the whole day to be with and take care of Owen.

Testing for live donors has begun and on Wednesday we will get the results of Dad and Erin’s testing and we’ll find out if either are a viable candidate and match for Shelby.

We are very much looking forward to the next few months and hope they bring BIG changes!
