This is the recipient's story:
I am Marcelo 'Marc' Siador Jr. from Dupax del Norte, Nueva Vizcaya.I was diagnosed with End Stage Chronic Kidney Disease on January 2015 and has been surviving on hemodialysis since then. Knowing that a successful kidney transplant will give me a normal life again has kept me positive and faithful throughout this ordeal.
Financial difficulties and the lack of a living related kidney donor has made my goal of getting a new kidney more difficult. My father passed away the same year I was diagnosed and my mother was left alone with the burden of supporting and taking care of me. I have not and will not give up though because I know that the Lord God is with me.
I decided to avail of a cadaveric donor from HOPE which is sadly much more financially demanding compared to getting a kidney transplant with a living related donor. Thankfully, with God's grace and with the generosity of many people whom I am eternally indebted, I was able to raise the initial financial requirement of 500,000 pesos to be able to get an endorsement for a cadaveric donor from HOPE.
Unfortunately, the money I have been blessed with so far will not be sufficient if I am going to have a kidney transplant with a cadaveric donor. I am hoping to raise at least one million pesos to make sure I am financially ready during and after the transplant. Thus, I am humbly knocking on your kind and giving hearts to help me raise more funds not just for my kidney transplant but also for my ongoing medical expenses(dialysis and medications).

Hoping for your compassion and generosity,
Bro Marcelo Siador Jr.
