For Dialysis patient...
Hello, my name is Mae Anne from Dasma Cavite, Philippines. My Father is a stroke patient for 10 years and now undergoing kidney dialysis. Honestly speaking, we struggle with the finances of the procedures and medicines. Dialysis procedure is definite necessity, however, as the costs are high, we are not certain to actually get to avail of the medicines injected for my Dad in a weekly basis.
I am starting this fundraising to help my Father where he undergoes dialysis. While it is my Father who is the real patient, and I a mere companion of his, knowing the hardship to undergo such procedures in daily session 3 times a day. As his daughter, it kills me, for i don't know who shall asked for financial support. Honestly speaking, My work and I cannot afford to support that much, the entire medicine that cost too much.
Me and Father only provides the financial support of our family, and now he is sick, it is only me who should provide, in which i cannot for now.
Having kidney problems in my country is very costly to address and this is why i am asking your financial support. The cost of one dialysis session ranges from P2,800 - P4,000 on a weekly basis. Dialysis treatment becomes their "new kidneys" in which responsible for removing excess fluids and harmful toxins from the body that will otherwise be stuck in the system causing the patient to bloat and have a hard time breathing (or worst, die).
Quoting a statement from blogger Julius (also a dialysis patient):
"Dialysis treatment, or most medical conditions for that matter, is not fully subsidized here in the Philippines. Although government agencies like Philhealth and the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) provides assistance and financial aid to patients, it still falls short on dialysis patients’ financial needs. Some of my fellow patients on the clinic where I go cut on their treatment frequency."
In behalf of myFather, we seek for your help by donating any amount that could possibly be an extension of his life. The donations that will be collected here will be used to sponsor my father's dialysis as he badly need the treatment but do not have the means to afford it. The donations will be used to pay either for the session itself or for needed medicines (Eposino injections, Renvela tablets, etc.). I will be posting photos/receipts/testimonials from the sponsored patient/s to prove that the money was used for the said cause. We truly hope you can be one with me, with us in extending "KINDNESS to Patients suffering from Failure KIDNEYS" and making this fundraising a success.
I am hoping for your understanding and support.
Thank you very much and may God bless us all!
