Matthew Ouimet is 2 years old. He has Primary Hyperoxaluria Type 1. He just received a liver/kidney transplant and is at UCSF fighting like a little warrior to receive and keep these treasured gifts. Prior to surgery, Matthew’s Mom, Kristi Wisecarver -Ouimet was driving 6 days a week from their home in Antioch, CA to UCSF (University of CA San Fransisco) for dialysis and to prep Matthew in the hopes that he would some day receive these organs. As you can imagine, bills are piling up! The Ouimet family’s other worries should not be financially based.
