Nephrotic Syndrome is a serious and rare auto-immune disease that attacks the kidneys causing them to shut down. There is no known cause and no cure. Treatments are extremely limited and consist primarily of cancer and transplant medications. Many patients are children who spend a major part of their life in and out of the hospital, trying to find a treatment that keeps them in remission while managing the side effects.
The Nephrotic Syndrome Foundation was founded in 2017 by Andi Callaway, a local Alamo mom, with a mission to bring direct support to children diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome and their families. Inspired by their own journey after their son was diagnosed with the disease, Andi and her husband Tucker got together with a group of dedicated friends in 2017 to establish NSF and support this deeply underserved group. In just 2 years, NSF has brought to life 6 programs to support these children and families, providing much needed financial and emotional support, education and local programming to those with this tough diagnosis, helping 100+ Bay Area families in this fight and many far beyond.
