“You will never fear death until you realized how close you are to dying” which I only realized when I was diagnosed of Chronic Kidney Disease stage 5 back in 2020. Three months after diagnosis I was hospitalized and had my emergency dialysis so I stayed at the hospital for 2 weeks.
My disease is taking a toll on me and my family emotionally, mentally, and financially. We are not rich or not in the level to afford my weekly treament and medicine and my monthly laboratories. Given that this situation will only be a cycle and may result to other possible diseases we are targetting this year for me to undergo transplant, luckily I already have someone who love me so much, someone who is willing to donate her kidney. We have not started the work up laboratories yet due to the cost which amounts to more than Php 150,000 or more than $3,000 and the fee for the surgery is not yet included which is estimated to be around Php1.5 M or around $30,000.
I am hoping and even begging to get help regarding the cost so I can go back to normal and to lessen the burden of my illness to my loved ones. And yes, they are the reason why I am determined to undergo the transplant at the soonest possible time. I may not be able to give back what you will give but I am sure God will return it ten folds.
May God bless you all 🙏🏼
