“If everyone threw all of their issues into the center of the table,” said Ronnell Lewis, “I bet everyone would pull their own back.” Lewis, 29, of Palmyra, has a rare and life-threatening kidney disease – FSGS – that has left him very ill; but his attitude is positive, and his strength evident.
“I was 13 when I was diagnosed with FSGS,” he said “I was at the doctor’s for a physical for sports,” Lewis explained. “There was too much protein in my urine, and that was how they found it.” Doctors do not know what caused Lewis to develop the disease. For years, life went on pretty much as normal for Lewis. Five years ago, his condition worsened, and he began to pay special attention to his diet and tried to get enough exercise.
