Greetings of Peace. Generosity, and Kindness!
I am Rachelle Jane Yabut, 38 years old, married, from San Fernando Pampanga, Philippines. The year 2013 I was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease secondary to Chronic Glomerulonephritis. I felt everything collapsed on that day knowing that your life will not be normal as it used to be. I have undergone different kinds of treatment to prolong the function of my kidney until this year my kidney function progressively deteriorating. I am already in Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 5 or end stage renal failure. My doctors advised that a Kidney Transplant is the best option for my case. Aside from Chronic Kidney Disease, in the year 2014, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. I had a total thyroidectomy (removing all my thyroid) and undergone a maximum dose of Radioactive Iodine. In the late year 2018, I was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. I don't know where I get the luck of always being dealt with a bad card. Battling these dreaded diseases is not easy. All I have is HOPE.
The treatment with my other illnesses has left us financially depleted. And we are unable to afford further kidney transplants. The estimate given for the transplant is 30,000 USD - 33,600 USD including workups, surgeries, medicines, and confinement. Our family has already exhausted their savings from my previous treatment.
I am hoping and praying that by sharing my story, there are people out there who could possibly give me hope and donate any amount. I really need financial support from God-sent angels like you to reach the required amount for a kidney transplant. You'll never know how your kindness will turn someone else's life around.
I have lived a life full of hardships and pains, but I believed God has helped me in so many ways through all these years. I know he still wants me to live with a purpose. I keep believing in God's goodness and faithfulness. I keep on asking Him to give me more strength and hope. Hope that one day I can live my life like a normal person again. With God's graces, your PRAYERS, and financial support, I know I can make it again, as I have made it with the previous years.
Please be an instrument of God to help me receive a miracle.
We all have the power to change lives. Please be that somebody who would help me extend my life.
Any amount is a huge help, and also please SPREAD and SHARE.
Thank you and Godbless!
