I am writing this to express my desire to pursue the option of a kidney transplant. This is difficult for me to write but this fundraising is my idea to survive my life.
Hi! Im Leziel Penilla 30 years of age from the Philippines. I may look healthy on the outside but i have been diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease.I have been doing dialysis for 4 months (2 time a week at 4 hours a day for each dialysis run) and it's not getting any easier for us add in the frustration of medical bills and prescription costs as well as all the running around to medical facilities.
According to my Nephrologist, transplant is still the recommended treatment for patients End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) or commonly known as Kidney Failure. At stage 5, my kidney is functioning at small % only, hence the need for a kidney transplant to have a better quality of life with STAGE 5 End Stage Renal Disease.
But there is still one thing that I am really worried about, the financial aspect of this circumstance. We need to raise more funds to support our operation and other future medical expenses. This will include the:
-Work- up procedure or over all laboratory test for me and to my donor 3-6 months preparation before undergoing the transplant: about Php200k ( Php100k per head)
-Surgery (Kidney Transplant): about Php 1.2-1.5 million
-Follow-up check-up/tests (both for me and my donor)
-Anti-rejection medication (lifetime maintenance): about Php 70-80k monthly
I want to live a normal life I want to take good care my future child no pain and sickness to do my job as a mother . I want to be with my family for many years in good condition and health, I don't want to die at early age.
I know how hard for my family that I have this kind of disease, I feel sorry for them that's why I try this fund raising. Im knocking to everyone's heart PLEASE HELP ME TO FULLFILL MY DREAMS Any amount would mean so much to me.

God Bless us
