Will and grace key to successful Pig Jig

Two weeks before his 25th birthday, newly earned master’s degree in hand and eager to depart for a one-year program in Kenya, Will Wellman seemed invincible.

Active and vibrant, he was on the cusp of building a life for himself and seeing what the world had to offer. But his body had other plans. Within a one-month period, Wellman went from experiencing intense stomach pain to being diagnosed with minimal change disease, a kidney disorder. Over the course of nine months, that disease would transform into a rare, incurable kidney disease known as FSGS.
