A young girl's life has been turned upside down from illness. Now she has a chance to get better, but her family needs the public's help.
The Harris family has been through the wringer when it comes to family health problems. They have a son with special needs, and the dad recently medically retired from the Airforce. Now, their youngest daughter, Maddyson, needs a new kidney.
7 year-old Maddyson may look and act like any other energetic first-grader, but nine months ago, her life was turned upside down.
"We were actually thrown into Maddyson's illness," her mother Tabitha explained.�"She was diagnosed March 19, 2014 with�end-stage kidney disease and congestive heart failure�and is requiring dialysis for�three days a week for�three and a half hours until she receives a transplant."
For Maddyson, the experience has been tough.
"Why don't you like it?" Tabitha asked.
"Because I'm scared," Maddyson replied. �
Since her diagnosis, the whole family dynamic has changed, from the seemingly simple things like where the family can eat or play, to the more serious, like unexpected medical expenses. .
