Hi everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read this.
I’m Olga Nicoli Sarsozo. I’m 23 years old and I live in Cebu, Philippines. I was diagnosed with Lupus last 2012. For six years of having this disease, I had a lot of complications.
I had to do chemotherapy sessions while I was going through college. I was in and out of the hospital for five years while studying Management Accounting. It was a hard battle but I graduated!
But this disease has its ups and downs. I experienced seizures, elevated blood pressure, severe anemia, fatigue, edema, arthritis — just to name a few.
Recently this June 2018, I had my worst inflammation that leads to the failure of my kidneys. My doctor decided to put me in Hemodialysis. I am now diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 5. This unnatural life support and kidney disease lead to many problems including high blood pressure, inability to make urine, chronic fatigue, anemia, swelling, brain fog, anxiety, muscle weakness, joint weakness, shortness of breath, headaches and overall discomfort. And worst of all, having to hook myself in a machine for 4 hours, 3 times a week. Nevertheless, I am still thankful and blessed that dialysis is keeping me alive but this is not how a 23 year old girl should have to live.
I want to be able to live my normal life again. I have to quit my work because I’m too weak to function. I want to spend quality time with my family and friends. Most importantly, I want my family to have a peace of mind that I am doing well
I am hoping to raise funds for a possible kidney transplant but I need your help to be able to afford it. With the government assistance of PHP 600,000 I need at least PHP 600,000 for my pre and post operation medication expenses. This is my chance of getting my life back. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Please help if you can, and if you can’t, no problem! You can always share my story.
I made a personal blog on my instagram about my hemodialysis and fund raising updates — @kidneyfornic . Kindly find time to follow me and check for updates ☺️
