Updated: 7/21/2021

As a thriving and free-spirited 9-year-old, you would not know that Lauren has two major illnesses. When she was a newborn, she was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease called, Bartter syndrome. A disease so rare, it had not been treated at children’s hospital in over thirty years. In addition to her kidney illness, she has type 1 diabetes. Lauren has a great network of specialists working with her so she can live life to the fullest. 

“I’m so happy we have Oishei Children's Hospital in our area. She has pediatric specialists to care for what she needs. We have a great team working together to keep her life on track.” – Lauren’s mom, LaTeesha.
