INTERVIEW: Ivorie Nicole & Bilateral Renal Agenesis
Feb 16, 2021 Season 2 Episode 35
Theresa Thomas & Kristine Hoestermann // Guest: Ivorie Nicole

Tonight we are sitting down with a mother who was faced with an incredibly difficult decision and one that didn't come without criticism. When Ivorie Nicole became pregnant with her little girl River she was over the moon. The feeling of excitement and joy quickly halted when she received the news that her daughter had bilateral renal agenesis. Bilateral Renal Agenesis is the absence of both kidneys at birth. It is a genetic disorder characterized by a failure of the kidneys to develop. We hope you brought your tissues for this one ! 

 Think of the people who are sharing their health story on social media or a blog, leading a Facebook group, hosting a podcast, working with nonprofits, collaborating with healthcare, and more!
