Last April 2014, a day I will never forget, my sister called me while I was at work. She told me that she was rushed to the hospital when she suddenly experienced a severe stomach ache. After several diagnostic tests were done, the doctor revealed and explained to my parents regarding the condition of my sister's health and what options were available to deal with the illness. The diagnosis was "End Stage Renal Disease" or "Kidney Failure". The doctor told us that she has to undergo dialysis while we wait for a kidney donor and the gathering of the funds needed for the procedure along with other medical expenses that will inevitably come after (which, from what I know, can reach several millions of pesos - about 4 - 5 Million). Although dialysis is currently keeping her alive, this will not be viable for the long term - the transplant must be done as soon as possible.
My heart sank when I heard the news. As the eldest, I am working so hard as the main financial source of the whole family. Because of that, I was expecting that my sister would eventually help me build a comfortable future for our parents as they grow old. However, that is all gone after what had happened to her. Because of the heavy load of the expenses and my limited income, I am barely able to pay for the dialysis, much more for the expenses of the procedure and what comes after. In this regard, I would like to ask for any help that you are able to give for my sister, any amount will do. It would be greatly appreciated as well if you could share this to everyone you know.
Thank you very much and may God bless!
