Nathan, now 6 years old, is diagnosed with Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, which leads to kidney failure. In March 2010, Nathan went through a kidney transplant and is still receiving intense treatment today. Despite the struggle with his life threatening illness, Nathan remains an optimistic young boy with big dreams. He is fascinated with technology, enjoys computers and reading, which makes him appear quite intellectual for his age. “He is always coming up with good ideas on how to improve on things!” commented his mother, Tina. At Thanksgiving, when he overheard Tina complaining about the meat thermometer not working well, Nathan decided that when he grows up, he will invent a better one and described the concept that the thermometer can be left in the meat while it is being cooked and sends notification through a cell phone app when the turkey is done!
