My name is Monica Hernandez. I am a pretty normal 25 year old. I am a mother to two amazing kids, a wife to my best friend and I am also a survivor. I was diagnosed with stage IV kidney failure in 2010. This was a very shocking diagnosis as I was only 22 years old. I became pregnant and was told that I should just abort the baby and give up on the pregnancy. (I walked out of that doctor’s office.) I now have a healthy, brilliant, smart, little girl who is my little miracle. She was born at 34 weeks and has been healthy since. My kidneys didn't do so well however. In 2011 after many endless and pointless doctors’ visits we decided to move out of state for better treatment. Then in 2012 I started with my dialysis treatment. I was at a kidney failure stage and there was nothing I could do about it. I have been unable to work because of my daily treatement. I have felt so helpless at times. But I have never lost hope. Unfortunately in early 2014 I was diagnosed with yet another devastating condition; Heart failure. I was literally heart broken. I have tried so hard to be so healthy. But once again I must never give up. I am now working torwards becoming even healthier. I have been put through some hard test in life. Life was never meant to be easy. I am asking to please help make life easier for my loved ones that have been working very hard to help with my medical bills. I know that I can help make a difference in that aspect of my life. Thank you all who have taken the time to read this. Thank you if you have donated already, your help makes me stronger and stronger every day. I feel much loved and very happy to know that we can all help each other out.Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them. Dalai Lama
