Andra's Story:
(9/18/09) To look at beautiful little 4 year old Andra Lavik, you wouldn't know there is anything wrong with her. But Andra was born with renal dysplasia and bilateral reflux, which means her kidneys do not function properly. Her bladder does not work at all so she has a surgical opening that she urinates from called a vesicostomy. She also has a heart condition called WPW. Andra's mom found out when she was pregnant with her that there was a problem with Andra's kidneys. In spite of Andra's many challenges, she is a happy little girl with a great sense of humor. In spite of all the medical procedures she's had to go through she is very resilient and a tough little girl. Andra's favorite things are to play dress up with her older sister, pretend play that she's going grocery shopping, and she loves to go to the park. Sparrow cash raised for Andra will help her family with the many medical related bills for tests on her bladder and heart, visits to nutritionists, and for special diapers that she'll need indefinitely. Her family has to travel to Portland often as well. anything wrong with her. But Andra was born with renal dysplasia and bilateral reflux, which means her kidneys do not function properly.
