Hi. I am Louienaire, 16 years old. I was diagnosed with SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus) secondary to Chronic Kidney Disease stage 5 (CKD 5). I undergo dialysis twice a week at NKTI. And the doctor advised me to stop going to school for the mean time.
2015 was the year when my heart palpitation have started. We did some workups and we found out that i have MVP (Mitral Valve Prolapse) everything went well, until last 2017, my heart palpitations were still continuous. We started another workups, and I was diagnosed with Lupus. I had a lot of laboratory tests and medications (medrol pulsing treatment) for 6 months. But we decided to stop because of its unhealthy side effects. Unfortunately, this treatment caused me to develop cataract in both eyes. July 18, 2018, we decided to undergo the procedure to remove the cataract in my right eye because i wasnt able to see clearly anymore and i was having a hard time seeing the notes written on the board at school.
Aside from this, we also found out that i have an ovarian cyst which needs to be removed as soon as possible.
I wish to have my transplant at the soonest possible time while i am still physically strong enough to undergo the procedure. Because dialysis creates more complications as time passes by especially to my heart.
We are asking your generous hearts to help us make this operation possible. With your donations, i can go back to school as early as possible and pursue my dreams to become a lawyer. We are still looking for some possible kidney donors. I also wish for you to include me in your prayers. Thank you so much and God bless!
