At an event held yesterday at Trump Tower, Teresa presented the check to nine-year-old kidney disease patient Matthew Levine, whose dad serves on the board of directors of The NephCure Foundation.
Teresa shared in the press release: “No one — especially a child — should have to deal with FSGS or Nephrotic Syndrome. I have met a number of kidney disease patients since I joined up with NephCure. Many of them you wouldn’t even know are sick. They look healthy from the outside, but these diseases are tearing apart their kidneys. Anyone who has FSGS or Nephrotic Syndrome should contact NephCure; they are making a difference.”
“I am so grateful that I can use my platform to help. Life is too short for drama and negativity and my work with NephCure reminds me every day to focus on what really matters in life. Please make a difference and join me in supporting NephCure.”
On hand to show Teresa some support was her husband Joe Giudice and also Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. This is reportedly the only time the Trump family showed up for any of the charity check ceremonies.
Only a few more days until the season premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey! Are you ready?!
