My name is Francesca Nicole Rivera and I would like to ask for some help for my dear Mamatess.
Mamatess has been with our family even before I was born. She has been a good and caring friend to my grandmother. After my grandma passed away, she stayed with my relatives and took care of them. Eventually, when I came to this world, she’s been right beside me since day one. She has spent 18 years of her life taking care of me without asking anything in return. They say, blood is thicker than water but she showed me otherwise. She has been present for every milestone of my life and has been very supportive of me. In short, she treats me and loves me like her own child. I’m beyond blessed to have her in my life because she taught me values that shaped me into the person I am today.
She was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus around 10 years ago. We tried to manage her diabetes; unfortunately, her kidney was already affected to the extent she was also diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease stage 3. Recently, she was diagnosed with Coronary Artery Disease. With that being said, her doctor advised her to undergo an urgent hemodialysis to prevent her from having seizures and cardiac arrest. At this moment, she is very weak and needs oxygen to support her breathing and unable to eat.
UPDATE: With your help, we were able to raise enough money for Mamatess' dialysis for the past 2 months. However, we still need your support for her maintenance hemodialysis. She undergoes hemodialysis three (3) times a week. If she misses her session, levels of toxins in her blood will build up rapidly that increases the chances of developing high-risk complications or death.
We still want Mamatess to be with us so we are humbly knocking on your kind hearts to help her with this fight. We would greatly appreciate your help.
