My cousin Mila Castanos (Em Tee Cee on Facebook), 55 years old, has chronic kidney disease secondary to diabetic nephropathy. She needs hemodialysis -- costing US$40 per session -- twice a week. In the Philippines, hemodialysis cost is borne by the patient and/or the patient's family though there are government hospitals offering the procedure for free; slots here however are quite limited and its nearly impossible to be successfully listed. It is also not possible to wait for open slots and postpone the procedure. My cousin is at the end of her resources. Its been three years since her diagnosis with 2-3x hemodialysis per week. To pay for her medical costs, she has sold her house, car, and other valuables. Her government disability pension now barely covers her utilities, food, and prescription medicines. Projecting her hemodia expense from May until December this year, my cousin will need US$2,560 minimum to have a machine in the hospital function as her kidneys. She would like to live --and let us help her live! -- and remain a productive member of her community. She's a writer-editor of agriculture (farmer-friendly) farming guides, research innovations among others. On the personal level, she has a warped sense of humor, is a closet religious being, and is considered a much' valued family/clan member. Please help her!
