Hello, My Name is Jerick Cayad-an. I am a Filipino and I am knocking to your hearts to help me and be part of my recovery - My Road to Kidney Transplant.
I am 22 years of age and I was recently diagnosed last February 14, 2019 with Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 5 secondary to Chronic Glomerolunephritis, Anemia and Urinary Tract Infection.
Where did I get this disease?
I was caused by an untreated tonsillitis. My tonsil got infected, the bacteria went to my blood filtered by my kidneys and my kidneys got affected.
I am currently undergoing Hemodialysis 3 times a week . The cost of Hemodialysis here in the Philippines is around $80 per session ($60 per session of Hemodialysis + $20 cost of Recombinant Human Erythropoietin being injected to me after my dialysis). My family is now running out of funds for my dialysis. My family have plans on having my Kidney Transplant to get rid of Hemodialysis and to finally beat this Kidney Disease.. My mother is so willing to donate her kidney. One of our biggest problem right now is the amount to be used for my transplant. The costs is estimated to be $40,000 USD.
Our insurance does not cover the costs and we are knocking to your hearts to donate any amount that could help me become normal again. A dollar would mean a lot to me and my family. Kidney transplant would be one way of me getting my life back. There is a big possibility that this disease can cause more complication as days goes by. There are times I can't breath normally because my lungs are prone to water retention because my kidneys are functioning too low. I gain around 2-3 kilograms in between sessions due to edema (water retention in the body) and the dialysis machine is the only way I could remove the water. My eye sight is also becoming blurry, my hemoglobin is too low, Phosphorous content of my blood is higher than normal, calcium content is too low.
There is this deep cry inside my heart every time I wake up crying out loud deep inside asking "Why Me?". I still smile, a lot, despite these struggles of life. I keep on fighting each day because I know He still has plans for me. I surround myself with lots of friendly people to aid myself in falling to depression. I just fight and fight each day because there are too may people who are helping me get through the day. I keep on praying. God bless you
