Hi, my name is Allan Bangayan. A year ago, I was diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy, a type of auto immune disease which attacks ones kidneys. During that time, 42% of my kidneys were still functioning. As such, I did everything to prevent further damage to it like salty food, etc. To my surprise, my kidney disease worsened. Just a few months after my first consultation, I developed an End-Stage Kidney Disease, wherein both of my kidneys were already severely damaged despite the preventive measures I had undertaken. My Doctor explained that in this kind of disease, it is my own body’s immune system that causes harm to my kidneys. Hence, no amount of preventive measures could avert it. In view thereof, I was advised by my Doctor to undergo dialysis. The other and best option would be a kidney transplant. Both procedures are expensive, however, I prefer the second option as it would permanently cure my illness as opposed to the dialysis which is too costly and would entail a lifetime procedure. Thus, I am currently on the process of raising funds for my kidney transplant. I am, therefore, appealing to your kind hearts for financial assistance so that I could pay for the said procedure. Any amount that you can give will serve as a means to further extend my life. This is the only way I could think of to raise funds for the transplant. To those who will extend their financial help, I may not be able to repay you but God certainly will.
