The fear we have been trying to avoid is finally happening
Her family now need funds for the KIDNEY TRANSPLANT since the PLASMAPHERESIS and RITUXIMAB treatments previously given does not seem to give her better results.
As of August 1, she had been receiving HEMODIALYSIS TREATMENT on a daily basis.
August 8, she had undergone PERITONEAL DIALYSIS CATHETER INSERTION.
She was in pain after the anesthesia wore out. This morning, August 10, she was sent for XRAY after complaints of extreme stomach pain. Results showed bowel obstruction since her daily intake is only limited to 600mL, plus the daily dialysis.
We are humbly asking for your kind donations and you can contact us personally if you need more details about her condition.
Ayesha and her family is keeping their faith strong in this time of great need. Thank you so much
