Help Anna Esguerra Get Her Kidney Transplant Surgery

Update posted by Anna Esguerra On Jan 31, 2020

Hi guys!

I have put this fundraising to a pause for now. Well, I haven't promoted the link since last year. I believe that I have received a very generous amount from all you guys which I am very, very thankful for. Also, I would like to let you guys know that a small percentage of the donations I have received have been used towards my dialysis treatments and medicines. On the side, I have been selling my things too to make up for these expenses.

Here are the latest updates about my journey of having my Kidney transplant:

  • I have started seeing my doctors, going to consultations to receive their clearance in order to do the pre-Kidney transplant exams
  • My cardiologist gave his clearance, and we'll do a stress test on my next visit
  • My nephrologist is close to giving her clearance, as long as the neurologist gives her clearance before deciding
  • My neurologist was thisclose to giving her clearance because she has started to reduce the maintenance I take since November to prep my body, and one of my maintenance medicines before will interfere with the anti-rejection medicines I have to take on the daily after said transplant
  • Lastly, and this doctor is a final add on, my dentist is also to be consulted for clearance before doing any examinations. Turns out my dental health needs to be cleared as well, and I don't know why this should matter actually.
  • We are still looking for donors.. :(
  • Recently I was admitted to the hospital because I lied facedown and had a seizure. When I regained consciousness, I was struggling to breathe and grasp for air. It was a delicate situation, and because of the people who saw me experienced an absence of thought, they insisted that I be brought to the hospital. Staying in the hospital was pretty short and I am so glad for that, we didn't spend a lot paying the bills. Let's hope this doesn't pause my waiting time and we'll continue with clearance and tests.

By the way, in case you may have seen any of the photos I have used here anywhere else, in other listings or posts going online, I have not authorized that or have any relations to the person who shared/posted it. I am only posting the photos here in this funding page.

Hey guys!

It has been put to my attention that my shortlink has not worked properly just now. Thank goodness someone told me about it!

Permanently, this fundraiser's shortlink (other than the one provided by GGF) is bitly/AnnaEsguerraKT.

Guess that is why no update has happened since I started using that custom shortlink since 2018? Oops.

Health-wise I am doing good. Less seizures now, most importantly. Physically I'm okay too. Just know that I'm weaker than my normal self compared to when I was not on dialysis. Doctors also told me I look good, so that's a good sign. We're also doing small steps towards working up on a transplant recently. Yup, the funds I've received here are going to be used for that. Please wish me luck, prayers are definitely appreciated.

It's also my birthday today! :D I've had fears not reaching this age since I was 26, when I started dialysis.

Well.. today is the day.

Happy birthday Anna! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness and good health

Hi guys!

My fundraiser is still on going, I'm just not promoting it as much as I have before because it's so stressful especially if not many people are looking into it. I was surprised last year when I promoted/advertised it and received many donations even from classmates whom I have never spoken to. Thanks for the help, guys!

Since last year, we were able to raise 3% from the goal amount. Thank you for helping out - no matter how small or big the amount is, it definitely helps. Also the donations from my bank account and given offline helps big time too! The amount donated will stay there until, of course, the time comes that it'll be used for medical expenses regarding my transplant.

Once in a while I will plug this fundraiser around my social media. It's hard to get this around since I have little amount of followers. For someone who is a "blogger" since 2005, why is this so hard? I should be having around 2000 at least LOL.

But guys, this fundraiser will be here.

OH and I almost forget to mention something: GoGetFunding and PayPal last year made a policy that disables their service for us non-business account PayPal accounts. More of it at the bottom of my fundraiser's description.

Please do let me know if you have questions. I have my email right at the description for any inquiries.

Thank you! <3

Hello guys! Back here to bring a small update. Campaign is still pushing though. Each donation received here is still going for my transplant surgery. Right now we are making ends meet for weekly dialysis costs along with medicines. With that said, this does not mean that any amount from this campaign is going in those weekly expenses.

This campaign's collected funds will remain untouched til the time my surgery can start; finding a donor, going through required labs for both of us, going through the other paper requirements for the surgery, etc.

Thank you once again for dropping by and checking my health history.

Please share this link if you can, too.

We are now at 3% in fulfilling my fundraising. Thanks so much, everyone, for spreading the word and donating. Sharing really helps too.

I really thought that this wouldn't get past 1%, but here we are.. none of this will be possible without you guys.

*gives a big big hug to everyone* :D

PS: Watch out for the eclipse this week!
