Lexi's Challenge

CHALLENGE

Lexi received a kidney from her mother after losing both of her kidneys at just 17 months old. After surgery to remove her kidneys, but before her transplant, Lexi completed chemotherapy and required daily kidney dialysis. She also needed vigilant monitoring to prepare for her transplant.

Solution

PHS provided infusion therapy, enteral feedings, and all the supplies to keep Lexi at home before her transplant.
