Our beautiful 5 year old boy is living with Chronic Kidney Disease. He has been fighting this awful illness since being diagnosed at 4 months of age. If your look at him, he looks like a healthy kid, that is because CKD is a silent disease. Our gorgeous guy suffers with daily incontinence, growing issues, iron deficiency, speech delay and many learning difficulties, which as he gets older are becoming more prevalent. We have recently been told his learning difficulties and delay would have been caused by his failure to thrive in utero. We don't know when his kidneys will decide to fail, it's a horrible waiting game, but what we do know is that at some stage during his life he will require daily dialysis and possibly a transplant. For now we do what we can as a family to let him be a 'normal kid' and support him with his daily struggles. Please support us as we walk for Harrison this year as well as all others living with this awful illness.

I asked Harrison yesterday if it bothers him that he has CKD, to which he replied, 'nah mum it's okay'. He is the most resilient boy we know and couldn't wish for a sweeter, kinder or more beautiful boy that we could call our son.

We love you Harrison!!!
