Wesley A. Child, Minimal Change Disease I have had Minimal Change Disease since I was 3 years old. I was also born 11 weeks early and have a life-threatening cow’s milk allergy. My parents have helped me to speak up for myself about reading labels on all the food that I eat. I am just like other boys. I like doing tricks on my bike. I play Animal Crossing, Mario and Kirby. I have lots of fun, even when I am having a relapse with my kidney disease. When you have to have blood work or shots, try to think of good things and it won’t be as scary.
