My Mother has been on Hemodialysis since 2008 and June this year, they switched her on Peritoneal Dialysis because of her weak veins. I am having difficulty to afford buying her solutions since then, unlike before, it was covered by our health insurance.
My name is Ulysses Dwight, I am an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW). I've been working away from my mother for years now just to supplement her Dialysis treatment.
I am a nurse and I'm really sad that instead of caring for my mother in The Philippines, I am away at her side working and caring for other people but aswell thankful to God that In a way I've become a blessing to the patients I've taken care of.
before, working as a nurse is giving me enough salary to supplement her hemodialysis but now because of her veins and other complications that made her switched to peritoneal dialysis have given me much difficulty in supplementing her dialysis solutions, vitamins and injections.
honestIy, I am currently in debt because of it from the sudden expenses we had from the last months since her switch and I'm imploring your kindness to help us with our finances, in terms of extending my mother's life, supplementing her peritoneal dialysis solutions and injections for a few months, just enough for me to stand on my feet again.
my mother is a strong woman and I love her so much. she's maybe getting thin because of all the stress imposed by her treatments, but me, my family, including her is not giving up because we know God is around us and will never leave our side.
I really am not going to ask if I'm not in a really tight situation. It is just that when my mother called this afternoon and cried because her solutions are running out and they can't find money to buy her solutions for tomorrow is when my tears started to fall.
I reassured her that everything is fine and everything will work out, that everything will be better, I pulled out every bits of the credit I have left on my cards to send it to them for her solutions for the comming weeks and that's just about it.
I am a salaried person and I'm lost of where I can still get money after that is finished, the month just started and my salary is weeks away.
your prayers or any amount would really be a great help for us and we would really be thankful.
thank you very much.
please help extend my mother's life and help her to concentrate in getting better and not being worried of her solutions for tomorrow.
