My father Armando has Type 1 diabetes since he was 29 years old. He is now 45 years old. He's been dependent to insulin ever since. And just earlier of the year 2014 he had several mild heart attacks and mild stroke. He was disabled for 5 months but regain abilities to walk and move on his own by the help of therapy and physical support of our family. But in the month of August his kidney doesn't function properly anymore. Last month he needed an emergency dialysis because he has reached blood creatinine level of 999. For some of you who doesn't know what a creatinine is, it is a chemical waste molecule that is produced when muscles use creatine and most of the waste creatinine is expelled from the body in the urine. The normal range of creatinine in a healthy adult male is 88-133. My Dad reached 999 and it means he has very severe kidney disease.
He has been on dialysis for more than a month now. Each dialysis session cost $60 and about $20 for the medicines, he needs 3 session a week.
To all of you who has a big heart we are asking a little help. No amount is small. Even a penny will help extend my father's life. He is a good person. He supported and provided our family his whole life and I am taking advantage in this way to help extend my father's life. Thank you.
