Hi, I am Maricel J. Dulatre, a mother trying to reach out to you friends, with the hope that you can help me share this story far and wide to be able to raise funds for my son's kidney transplant and I his mother as the kidney donor. My son is Marc Vince J. Dulatre, 16 years old, and we are from Poblacion East, Pugo, La Union. He is a very active teenager playing different kinds of sports when he is still in school. He also loves Dancing & Photography competing to the different places of the country. But lately, he’s been admitted to and from the hospital that we just learned that he needs a kidney transplant, and that a living donor is his best chance of having a normal life again. He has been suffering from rare disease called Henoch Schonlein Purpura since 2014 leading to Chronic Kidney Decease Stage 5. It was just last August 10, 2019, he was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 5 Secondary to Henoch Scholein Purpura. He had to undergo emergency dialysis because he was already symptomatic and the creatinine was already 2473.96 umol/L (normal value: 71-133 umol/L). At present, he’s been undergoing dialysis three times a week. Although this is covered by my Philhealth, we are still in need of funds for other expenses specially that Marc Vince is being treated three times a week of his hemodialysis at Cordillera Kidney Specialist Dialysis Center, Baguio City, laboratory expenses, twice a week Erythropoietin 4000 IU and considering also travel expenses from La Union to Baguio City. CKSI Dialysis Center, Baguio City is one of the nearest dialysis center to our place. This big amount needed for his kidney transplant, we can no longer afford. But I wanted my son to recover, be healed and get back to his normal life. So I will do all means to save my child and lead him to normal life. A child full of dreams. His words to us is that he wants to be healthy again, & go back to school. We want him to enjoy his teenage life & live to the fullest. A kidney from a living donor can save his life. I then volunteer to be his kidney donor. We are knocking on to your good heart if you could donate even a small amount can help us raise fund for his kidney transplant that cost big amount. Together with my family and friends, we need to raise (Php 1,200,000.00 / 24,000.00 USD) to cover all expenses from lab tests, surgery, and at least three months’ post-transplant medications. Transplant will be done in God’s perfect time ‘til end of year 2020 either at National Kidney Transplant Institute, Diliman, Quezon City or Lorma Medical Center, San Fernando City. More importantly please include my son in your prayers. Please Like and Share this post. Thank you my friends!
