a Message from Rudolf
I am Rudolf Valace C. Gerna, I’m 24 years old a current college student, that has been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, end stage renal failure and this is my story. I am a regular college student that studies AB- Political Science in Philippine Christian University Manila, then suddenly I felt that my body is not in a good shape, when I came to our clinic they knew that I have a high blood pressure, many months passed I felt that my body is gradually becoming weaker, my eye sight is kinda blurry and my skin is so pale, one day I felt so exhausted for every single body movement that I make, I can’t sleep at night, I’ve felt that I have too much body fluids that caused me to sleep in sitting position, my parents got worried because we don’t have the wealth to provide for my medical assistance, One morning I started to vomit, my feet got swollen and I had a metallic taste in my mouth, I started to faint due to exhaustion, then my father and I went to the public hospital and we’ve waited for almost a whole day just to get my number because It’s a public hospital. Then the doctors diagnosed me that I am suffering on a Chronic Kidney Disease- End stage Renal Failure. I felt that my whole world collapsed and my dreams will only remain in my dreams, I sympathize my parents because they don’t know what to do and we don’t have that much for my treatment, Doctors told me that their are 2 possible treatments on my current condition, it is by undergoing to Hemo-dialysis or to be a candidate for a kidney transplant. We chose hemo-dialysis because it is much affordable compared to kidney transplant because we cannot afford that kind of treatment, I have some medical assistance from our government but It’s not enough because of the current status and issues on my country, doctors said that I must undergo on a 3 times a week session but due to its expensive cost we deducted it in to two sessions per week, It’s too hard to get diagnosed with this kind of illness because your life changes and I cannot do normal things that I used to do. I can’t even help myself because I am always exhausted and I am suffering from hypertension. I am writing this letter because I know my parents cannot afford and they are constantly worrying, I know we don’t have that kind of money for my medical assistance. A year passed and this last July I suffered again from a secondary infection I was diagnosed with an Infectious diarrhea, which made me pooped blood and vomit. At that time I almost died, The doctors diagnosed me that my appendix got rapture, I don’t know how but, it is still associated with my Kidney Disease and caused my fistula to shut down and now I’m back to IJ Catheter, I undergone on a major operation while suffering from another disease, I went on a appendectomy, to lenghten my lifespan. We got bankrupt after the operation because of the hospital bills. I need to undergo for another operation again for my new Fistula that has a pricey cost, And now we can’t afford my hemodialysis sessions, my mother Imelda Gerna was only a local government employee age 56 and my father Cesar Gerna was a company messenger aged 55 their both minimum wage earners, And I’m still studying in college, I want to pursue my education to have a job someday so that I can help them on my treatment sessions I really want to go to school Because I love to study, but we don’t have much to sustain our needs and my medicine maintenance. I am writing this letter to all of you who have a kind and compassionate heart to please help me, because I know that our God will knock on your heart to help not only me, but also the other people like me.
