Dad has been suffering from Chronic Kidney Failure. He started his dialysis merely two years ago. I know we had financial struggles but through the help of kind-hearted people, we breakthrough that. Last year, merely July, we started paying in cash because Philhealth covered 90 sessions only. The fact that Dad had been hospitalized, the 90 sessions were reduced.
Dialysis is life. We just accepted and turned to a solution. We have to have 10K per week. That doesn’t include injections, medicines and other expenses.
I started wondering what can I do to make it a lessen burden for my parents. I enrolled in Rural Impact Sourcing Technical Training. I participated in the first Hack4PH through RIS.
We, MOM, Ate Sheng and I, conceptualized ways for fundraising not just for Dad but for the Dialysis patients of B-Braun Dialysis Center for the meantime. IT WILL BE LAUNCHED SOON. I hope everyone can support and participate in this kind of cause.
I guess this is the start of a long time advocacy for Dialysis Patients.
With dialysis, there is life beyond the disease!
